  1. the process will be the same, from what i am understanding in your original post, you need to connect server A which has the DB to server B. thsi is all done with port forwarding, and the connections established with the DB system. don't assume that just because the writer works for MS it will only work on their systems. besides if you look at your MS windows XP installation you will see it uses mySQL for it's db tables. not a MS Access.
  2. most of the mobos that use that ram don't recognize the reverse compatibility. There were only 4 mobo manufacturers that actually utilized that process, and most of the time they didnt' give the entire ram usage or they heated the chips up to meltdown. Thats why it's classified and a no for reverse compatibility. more risk for damage on those machines than there is for these newer mobos that use pc2100 and up.
  3. this should help, it's from MS. There are a few steps in making this happen, so make sure you click next task in lesson to continue on until you have it all. Connecting from Another Computer
  4. hi shanenin, no the backwards compatibility didn't exist until computers started using pc2100 and pc2700 ram. pc100, pc133, and pc66 ram are actually different sizes by a few millimeters. to the human eye it doesn't look like much, but when it comes to computers that is the same as trying to put a AAA battery in a spot designed for a AA battery. loose enough that things just won't work.
  5. The Win XP compatibility mode is far from perfect, I have had a lot of programs that are designed for Win98/ME but Windows xp can't run even with compatibility mode set for 98. some of those programs rely heavily on the DOS programming which is no longer included as of Win2k.
  6. Like Matt said, yes it will automatically update, and while the update is downloading you won't even know about it until it's ready to install. Just remember Liz, being a resource hog won't necessarily "slow" you down, but can mean more such as using hard disk space that coudl be better utilized for other files, or memory which can cause programs to hang, including windows. Usually when a program crashes, where you get that error reporting feature that says "this program will close due to an error" or however they say it, is caused by lack of RAM.
  7. well now I did it, I missed a step when I built the kernel. time to start over again. If I have any questions I'll post it here.
  8. the which mkinitrd command produces nothing.
  9. ok, I have the Kernel built and the modules built, but when I go to use this command mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.16.img 2.6.16 I keep getting this bash comment bash: mkinitrd: command not found now I know I have mkinitrd on my system, I did a search for it and found it in /etc so I tried it using the full path to it and still got the command not found message. What should I do now?
  10. first off because no one questions the speed, they are generally happy that it works you have 128k cach with 267MHz fsb. This can be changed to 400fsb with proper overclocking, however you risk burning your processor up. Intel chipsets are not properly designed for Overclocking. Thats why most gaming machines have AMD chipsets, they overclock easily without high risk for damage to the CPU.
  11. haha, I knew i forgot something, didn't have build essential installed. once I installed it I was good to go, Thanks shanenin. whereis g++ g++: /usr/bin/g++ /usr/bin/X11/g++ /usr/share/man/man1/g++.1.gz g++ --version g++ (GCC) 4.0.2 20050808
  12. ok I'm running into a little problem, $ make xconfig HOSTCXX scripts/kconfig/qconf.o /bin/sh: g++: command not found make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/qconf.o] Error 127 make: *** [xconfig] Error 2 I have all the necessary files to do this but I keep getting that error, I'm using g++ 4.0
  13. it's the same process as using it to recover windows, it will do it automatically. I also recommend that you disconnect the old HDD that you are using so it doesn't get confused as to which isntall to fix. just make sure your cable is set properly to recognize the new HDD as primary.
  14. thats not a normal sound from your mobo then. I wonder if your mobo has something similar to smoke detectors, you know they chirp when the battery is failing. There is the possibility that your mobo is set up to do the same when the CMOS battery is failing. Just a thought.
  15. I need to think these things through on one post, I just remembered, when I had to replace my mobo, I ended up with the same problems you have. my Linux install had no issues, but I had to reinstall the drivers using the recovery console.
  16. I also got thinking, most of your drivers that your mobo would use are in Windows, Therefore, using the repair console would solve this issue. your saying it's a driver problem. however unless you are using 3rd party drivers, like for a SATA hdd, then all the drivers make this a windows problem.
  17. Is your new HDD listed as drive C or something else?
  18. that was my next suggestion Sceeter. lets try the simple routes before going the harder ones
  19. before this gets too complicated, did you try to start the computer in safe mode from teh new hdd?
  20. hth Hey Dragon, thanks for the post man! I will look into this, I'm not sure if FF 1.0.7 is actually 1.5 or if they've put in some of the security fixes. In an earlier version of Debian (sarge) I asked the question why are the FF versions lagging behind what is currently released (I asked this on the debian boards) and was assured that even though the current version of FF in debian was 1.0.4 it had the security fixes of 1.0.7 in place. So, I'm assuming that Etch's version of 1.0.7 has some current security fixes in place. if it 1.0.7 then you have the current fixes for that configuration. Mozilla is running two different versions of FF right now, 1.0.7 soon to be updated to 1.0.8 and 1.5.01 so make sure you know exactly what version of FF your using. Sorry to have taken this off topic
  21. do you know what your pipline burst is on the motherboard?? I know my pipeline on my gigabyte Mobo is a 512k cache, with 333 MHz FSB. If you don't know, check your mobo specs in the manual or run a program like Everest or Aida32
  22. here is the list of things that Ubuntu has integrated FF into that needs to be completely rebuilt. 51 source packages in total. Most likely all of these need to be rebuilt to say the least, if they're compatible with 1.5 at the source level at all... I'm hoping people are seeing why backporting Firefox 1.5 is going to be such a major job This will be included straight up in Dapper when it is released in June. they had to push it back 6 weeks.
  23. nero will burn at the highest rate that the computer can handle, for example my burner will accept 12x but the highest I have ever gotten it to go was 8x. it all depends on the cache, the ram, and the pipeline for the CPU
