  1. I have a few Odd questions, everything is so big, and i can't figure out how to change it...and you know how when in windows you press down on the mouse wheel on a three botton mouse and you see that four way arrow thingy, is there a way so it does that on linux?
  2. When i do click on the partition it says Can't Mount. Edit: eth0 is there but i donno what it should have said >_<. Edit...again lol: I was reading the Ubuntu forums and wireless and USB can be a problem? could this be it...i use Ethernet for my Ps2 but i havn't been gaming much latly, so i wont mind to much moving it over, but is it a fairly simple fix for the USB? Scratch that,i just whent ahead and pluged in my Ethernet, and nets up and running, infact im on Ubuntu right now.
  3. Hmm k *Writes it down* Radeon Im using ubuntu, hope that works.
  4. Ha, im back with more stupid questions, First, hmm my connection doesn't seem to work 0_o, Second about 45mins in i was just messing around seeing what i could do and it froze , i waited 15mins and in the end i had to shut off power my computer (Not cool) Third, Video Card Drives? When, Where, How? And last, can i look at my NTFS partitions and read files from them? Connection: Im using DSL ISP: SBC-Yahoo Freezing: Yeah it froze out of nowhere, i wasn't doing anythi....wait on second thought i was trying to open my DVD-Drive (which never opened btw ) befor it completly froze it was freezing for a few seconds, and come back for afew mins...then it'd only come back for a few seconds, and then completly. Drivers for video card: Um...ill google this so you can prolly ignore it, but help is always welcome =P NTFS: This is importent because i dont really want to have 2copies of my music...documents and vidoes.

  8. I was just messing around with it, and i got it to boot to the GUI, i just looked in my settings in windows and found my video card in PCI:1:10:0 and loaded up the liveCD waited for it to error, got to a termenial and typed... sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and changed the PCI from PCI:0:1:0 to PCI:1:10:0, and then startx, um...well obivously this isn't gonna work with the LiveCD causing doing that everytime is stupid, but once i get my new HDD (Hopfuly tomm) and install Unbuntu once i change it, it should stay changed yeah? Thanks for the help ^^ and as im (Hopfully) going to be diving into Linux soon ill prolly annoy you again soon >_<
