Well, the worst has happened, I destroyed my mbr. I tried everything but since I got one of those %$%^*#$@ ghost recover disc everything got over written.
I learned alot, like dont make changes with cfdisk if everything is already partitioned.
I also learned emerge kde takes forever....even on a 1.6ghz p4 with a gig of ram.

Anyway Windose, is back up and running the hard drive is partitioned and I'm on vacation this week...

Thanks for the sugestions and help.

See you.

Sorry to hear that.Any idea what happened?
You might wanna try slackware or debian.Easier to setup and maintain.Plus things actually work with those - at least with debian.Never used slack.
