  1. Fixed it by running check disk while i wasn't in windows which is what i should have done first time round. Thanks for the input.
  2. Im getitng the following error The file or directory \Program Files\Winamp\winamp.m3u is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the chkdsk utility. Ive ran the chkdsk utility and tried reinstalling winamp but still gettin the problem.
  3. Got it working now, didn't realise it was a colour scheme and not a whole style them. thanks henry
  4. Basically i can't stand the windows xp default theme, from reading some other posts on this forum i notice people prefer the silver xp theme. I don't appear to have this on the pc and was wondering how i could get it installed.
  5. The problem you are describing is similar to one i had with an old monitor when i was installing gentoo. I don't know how to fix it in the case of suse since i have never used it. In my case for gentoo when cd first booted up and i had to boot with the options --nofb (possibly something slighty different) the problem was with the framebuffer. Hopefully this could be of osme help.

    amsn doesnt need to be installed, just untar it and then ./amsn should do the trick if its in the right place.

    the bad interpretor has something to do with where the file is located. Not sure exactly what. Its either the amsn directory has to be in your home directory or the amsn script has to be on desktop. one or the other

    Install Help

    If you have already installed linux and created a boot floppy during the install you should be able to use that to boot into linux.

    I now have almost no reason for going back into windows anymore. i have found a way of doing everything i did on windows in linux. I can run all the games i play and i just installed edonkey the linux version with gui. Those were really the only reasons i was still using windows instead of linux. Unfotunatley i can't get rid of windows completely because there are some apps i need for school which won't work on linux.

    I installed Slack a couple of months back, the install was pretty straight forward. The only thing is you need to have you partitions set up using fdisk before u begin as there is no option of doing it within the install. I actually used partition magic to set up the partitions and it worked fine. Once it was installed there were a few problems with my mouse and the display being messed up. After a little reading on some linux forums they were easily fixed by running Xconfigurator and adding some lines to my xf86config file. The other problem i had was with my onboard sound card ac97 which i couldnt get to work. I really liked using slack and its a very good distro it just requires a bit more configuring than others. I think i might go back to it in a couple of months when ive learned a bit more about linux.

    I copied the config.cfg file from /wine/documentation/samples and edited it to look like the following. I made my mount point for cd-rom /mnt/cd-rom.
