just be VERY VERY carful with using fedora 8 rpm's on linpus

it is a game of "Russian roulette"
some will work and some will KILL the linput light install and there is no way to know what ones

By the way regarding my grammer and punchuation and spelling,i apologize its just i'm absolutly going cross eyed trying to sort this out,had about 7 hours sleep in 4 days since this problem arose...just been constantley on my acer trying to sort it,you also asked about backing up files,ive never done this basically i wouldnt know how to.You gotta take into account i only use my acer for watching youtube.Was quite hopeful when i saw the respones hoping one of them might get it sorted but it was not to be..Listen all who responded a really big thank you for taking the time to post the your thoughts on the problem,i really am grateful. Think i'll have to admit defeat now though there just seems no way i can get flashplayer to install,time to start saving up for a more modern netbook,will definatley be steering clear of linux linpus whatever its called,its just way to complacated for a simpleton like me lol. thanks again all.
You can get the ultimate edition of ubuntu its already done for ya..
