For your problem in re-booting, try adding 'noapic' to the 'append =' line in /etc/lilo.conf. Your line currently says:

append="quiet devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off"

edit this to read:

append="quiet noapic devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off"

APIC has to do with IRQ allocations, so if your motherboard is having troubles with that, turning it off can fix it. See an example where this approach worked, here:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ghlight=noapic

After editing /etc/lilo.conf, run, as root:

lilo

This will make the changes to the bootloader. Then shutdown and re-boot.

Are you sure you are in Konqueror - Super User Mode when trying to change these permissions?

Sorry, had to ask...

I gather the permissions are not 'rwxrwxrwx'?

Try Konsole - Super User Mode; enter at the command line:

chmod -R 777 /mnt/win_c
chmod -R 777 /mnt/win_d

and see what happens. (case is important in this (and all Linux) commands).

... unmounted the windows drive (two pations one drive)
and then remounted them as

mnt/windows
mnt/windows2

now i can view them in regular user mode thats a quick fix but i still have a problem i cant change the permissions when im in as superuser mode and i dont understand why. give me a second to try what you said updating the win_c for windows of crouse

edit: i see so chmod -R 777 /mnt/windows
chmod -R 777 /mnt/windows2

is just a way to change permissions threw the terminal correct?
obviously now it has no effect because the new mount locations already have permissions "drwxrwxr-x"

Yes, it is just another way of achieving permissions changes, but through the console. 'chmod 777 -R /mnt/windows' will have some effect, as at present, the permissions are 'rwxrwxr-x'. '777' will change it to 'rwxrwxrwx'. The last '7' will change the last group of three letters from 'r-x' to 'rwx'. The '-R' is a switch to make the changes recursively through the subdirectories.

You WILL be able to change the permissions in Konqueror in Super User Mode because you have root permissions while you're operating in that mode. Why is that a problem? This is normal behaviour.

<edit> info re -R switch.

Sorry, my error. FAT32 (vfat) knows nothing about Linux file permissions, so the 'rwxrwxrwx' mean nothing and can't be changed, as there is no place in the Windows filesystem to register the information. Sorry for sending you on a wild goose chase. It seems you solved your original problem by creating new mount points of 'windows' and 'windows2'. You could probably have achieved the same effect by unmounting 'win_c' and 'win_d' and then re-mounting them. Still don't know why 'win_c' and 'win_d' didn't become visible straight away - must have been a glitch somewhere.

Yeah, shuffles uncomfortably...

How did you go with your logout/re-boot issue? If 'noapic' made no difference, then I would suspect a hardware problem. I had a computer that would not re-boot; it had to be shutdown, then re-started from scratch. Otherwise, it would not POST. As time wore on, it needed more time shutdown before it would boot correctly. I chased cooling, more case fans, etc, but it eventually turned out to be a power supply problem. The power supply didn't have enough capacity for the hardware setup (AMD). See here for more detail:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...lys#post323816

If you suspect this might be your problem, just check what the label on your power supply says for the output current (in Amps) on the +12V rail. If it is not at least 15A, then I would suspect that first.

alrighty then, i think i solved all my newbie problems thus far. i was testing linux on a tiny 2.5G HD i had laying around in my box of.. "stuff" so i think ill make the move and buy something more substantial +50 giger and swap linux onto that... i do believe the power supply is the root to my shutdown.restart problem i tested it i shutdown unplugged my second hd and the cdrom/dvdrom drives, rebooted.... clicked logoff/shutdown/reboot and they all work so just fine.

what sux tho is just JUST bought this 350W p/s when i upgraded my system a month ago...oh well maybe ill catch a deal on a case and p/s i need a tower that breathes better.

thanks for the help G.

Glad to be of help. In my case, my power supply was supposed to be a 400W one, but it could only handle 12A on the +12V line. I didn't realise the implications of that until I came across that link to the AMD paper.
