Hi Anthony:

That is common for Xandros. It doesn't like stuff that isn't in it's own repository. Xandros was my first Linux install but after experiencing what you are experiencing l started looking for a more user friendly distro. I finally found one in SimplyMepis at and l've never looked back and l am so satisfied with it that l turfed windose on my box. Have been using Mepis since last summer.
