It probably isn't "junk of that nature." Post it please.

Yeah, that "junk" is what we need to help solve the problem.

I'm really not familiar with anything before Mansdrake 9 so I'm not sure of the locations and specific commands are correct.

Try this
as root


There are other things that might work but this is a good place to start.

No longer maintained

n/m, its a waste of $$ (don't get it!) and time plus I just found out that its no longer a maintained distro, besides I think I know the problem - I need an older PC one that uses i386 - it recognizes mine as a i686.

thx anyway, ben.

That's not the problem, i386 is the base architecture the code is compiled for, but it'll quite happily run on an i686. The problem is that it's old - driver support will be flaky - you'd be far better off doing an install of Knoppix to the hard disk, or similar.
