Thanks for the help jax and thanks to anyone who bothered to read this thread. I've given up since nothing in the linux startup disk will work now. I'm back to XP
. I really think this has something to do with the bios that sony uses in the computer. I might try linux again if/when i get a new computer. Until then, I need a usable comp/OS for school and I don't have the time to deal with this. Good luck A.D.D.
P.S. when I get the cashish to buy a new computer I'm planning on smashing this one with an axe. I'll try to post the vid when it happens.
