Yes, thanks.

That also got rid of the 1 second delay in the sound and some annoying high-pitch noice that came if I tried to raise the volume too much. Anyone can explain what it was?

So the two problems I have at the moment left are while shutting down kde and another problem with my computer of some reason doesn't seem to use lilo.conf to check how long it is supposed to count down.

"high-pitch noice that came if I tried to raise the volume too much"

I've had that too. Since your using an amp (works with powered speakers
as well) , let the amp push the speakers, turn up the volume on that, and
keep your software mixer settings lower.

--------------------------

"...doesn't seem to use lilo.conf to check how long it is supposed to count down."

After editing lilo.conf, you run "lilo" at the prompt, right?


--------------------------

"problem.... shutting down kde"

I'm a bit lost on that one. Solve the other two first, Then maybe I/some else
can help you with that one.

Yes I got lilo figured out now, but I don't understand the reason why I have to run lilo once I changed the settiings. Isn't it enough that it starts it once the computer starts up. I mean it has to check the settings from the file then, won't it?

And for the part about shutting down kde I had written about it earlier. But the problem is that once I shut down kde and am back in the prompt then the mouse pointer is stuck on the uppermost line on the screen and it can't be moved in any reasonable way. And if I push the mouse in any direction it starts copy-pasting stuff from the uppermost line at random.

This started a couple of days ago when the only thing I had done on the computer was used the internet to write some posts here in the forum and copy-paste some text using gedit from a file to the post i was writing. And that was all I did. Then when I logged out of kde the mouse started behaving weird. And there was also 5-6 line with this text then.

No lilo does not check the conf file at boot up. When you run lilo, it puts that info into the boot sector and that is what is used. Even if you delete the whole partitiion, if you store to mbr it will still run the same lilo, that you last stored.
