It's better to do it here in the forums because:

1) other people can help fix your problem

2) others might be helped by the process and solution of fixing the problem

http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

Specifically,

Use meaningful, specific subject headers
...
Be precise and informative about your problem
...
Describe the problem's symptoms, not your guesses
...
Don't ask people to reply by private email
...
Don't flag your question as Urgent, even if it is for you

Honestly, I am not trying to be a smartass, but literally, the best I can do with the information provided is something isn't working. The reason you aren't getting many replied through all 3 of your same threads on this subject is due to the lack of information. As another poster in another thread stated, is there a Mandrake RPM for your emulator?
