Thanks, I'll try that.
I don't think I had all the dev modules installed, so i went to install then, then cancelled a little way thru, then i couldnt get to KDE so I couldn't copy over my files and settings.
I also want to install Gnome so that will let me do that. I haven't been able to install any other programs, it keeps error-ing at the C- compiler stage of ./configure...
so yeah a bunch of probs, thought I'd just reinstall and start over.
What are the commands to copy a whole directory over to the partition?
