  1. After a relentless search, I found the answer. solved.
  2. So I had Linux installed on my 40 gig primary master, and then installed w2k on my secondary master. I can boot into both, but only by changing boot disk priority. I only did that to make sure they both work fine, which they do. The only problem is that I don't get an OS to select screen! I've read about MBR overwriting LILO and making it so you can only boot to windows, but never this way. Any ideas?
  3. Try putting "firefox" for "Enter link to location". It doesn't matter what the "File Name" field says... This is assuming you have kde 3.4
  4. That's so I can install vista on it. Would everything still work if I copied everything in / to my new hard drive and install vista on the old one?

  6. I have mandriva 2006 with kde 3.4.. How do I make windows translucent? I think I've seen it done, but don't know how. Is there a special theme or something?
  7. Yes...obviously I am.. No, I am really not. Is there anything I can do to solve this? Maybe install it as secondary slave or something else?
  8. Yes, this title is misleading. Here's an article I read the other day that I think everyone should read:
  9. Also, I was wondering if I could move everything in "/" to my new hard drive and use the old one for vista, since its smaller.
  10. I just got a new WD Caviar 80 gig hard drive and installed it as primary slave. I did this so I could dual boot Vista and Mandriva, but wierd things happenin'. I'm trying to format the disk with NTFS, but I can't find it in "Devices", or /mnt. When I boot from the Vista disk, it sees the 80 gig as somewhere I can install windows. But...when I click "format disk", it does its thing, then I click "install" and it says it doesn't fit requirements.. I don't need help with the can't meet requirements, but do you guys know why I can't see my new hard drive?
  11. When I start Yamipod, I get that I don't have write permissions for my iPod. How do I give it write permissions for myself?
  12. Nevermind...it has changed! I would like to personally thank GTKpod for deleting every file on my iPod without me asking it to. Piece of shi*.
  13. I use GTKpod and when I try to make any changes, GTKpod displays them as I've made them, but on my iPod, nothing has changed.
  14. Okay, new problem...is there a way to get amarok 1.4 without having to go through loads and loads of dependency downloads? I tried urpmi amarok, but it doesn't have 1.4, only 1.3
  15. What icon set are you using, darkelve?
  16. WinXP? Definitely gonna be a 0...haha
  17. haha...if I could afford it...wait I can...if I wasn't so lazy... :P
  18. Wow...I made a thread that was PINNED! Amazing.... As for my theme, the average rating seems to be about a 5-6...well....stfu. :P mC
  19. Yup...its awesome. You see, what you do is post a picture of your desktop, and then the person below you rates it on whatever scale, and posts their desktop. The person below THEM does the same, and etc. KDE 3.4.......MD2006
  20. <-------------Funny funny. All I did was resize it.
