i'll make the floppy, how do i do it? cause u just tol me to make it manually with Grub, i don't know how to access Grub from windows XP and type linux commands from windows an elaboration on that whould be great, cause if a floppy whould solve my problem i will happly do exzctly what u tell me cause im begining to give up on linux entirely be cause it's frustrating me. (i've been trying for 3 or 4+ days) or could you make the floppy for me, then put it in a folder and send it to me? <email or Shad0w9495 <AIM or <MSN

i am screwed, i just put the linux drive on my sisters computer (as the only drive) linux ran great and i played super tux for 2 hours but now i can't get windows to work again, my sisters gin kill me if i don't get it working and this thread seems to have died and now im in more hot water then before. (when i put the windows drive back on as the only drive it just beeeps when i start up, no screen or nuthing) then i tryed the linux drive back on there but it still won't work. since this place was NO HELP WHATSOEVER im goin to another place to get sum help, or else i'll have to waste time fixing it.

**edit 9/15/05**
yeah i finally fixed the darn thing, apparently the RAM was damadged by my hand my hand was prob staticly charged (forgot to discharge myself) and i mita broke the ram stick (i touched it while switching hds, go figure) but i did so i ran to the store and grabed a ram stick (a bigger mem) and it worked no problem don't even ASK how i figured it out [but for the curious ones i spent about 3 hours total examining and raking my brain goin thru each step it takes when u hit the pwer button and i pinpointed it just in time cause my sister had a paper to fix up and it was only on that HD, phew) so im jus goin to dig up my old P3 from the attic, stick the linux drive in there and get onea those kvm or k sumthing switches so i don't have to get a whole seta new monitors and mice for linux (it will never work on my amd 64 ) and be DONE WITH installing it and get to the fun part of USING it! this thred can be closed.
