i had some fun yesterday with my linux part. althought im not quite sure what my poor linux
i did some _hysterical_ apt-get upgrade, update, install and everything else i could do
without knowing what im doing of course how a good noob should do it.
so right now there is my messed up linux status
its starting in a window about 320x200 as #root.
the key mapping is somehow messed up
and a few other stuff. thats from my ibm thinkpad t41.
i wasnt able to switch to my normal keys.
so anyways this was the history.
right now i want to set up my partition again.
i have dual boot windows xp / linux.
now in windows can i somehow just delete the linux part. and recover der mbr
or do i need to load in dos and do the mbr fixing?
its just i have no disk drive and god knows where my win cd is. *looking under the bed*
ok that is the first qeustion.
second question is for preventing myself from the doom of maniac updating.
how sould an update in linux be done.
i am using knoppix / debian kernel and i really like the
i mean in this case ( and i hope i wont get killed in a very bloody way when writing this )
is there a win>system/software section in linux?
where i can see what i have installed and how to remove it?
i will NOT let myself be defeated by the demon of updates.
