  1. Hey guys, anyone in here have XP Pro? If yall do yall mind going to your system32 folder and copying a file called systeminfo.exe and uploading it and send it to me? Why? I really like the feature, but I'm stuck with XP Home. Btw, No Offenece to some of yall, but I want it form trusted besttechie members
  2. Hey guys, I played BF2 at my friends house, and he told me how he hates playing full screen. *he is a CS 1.6 player and in that game you can play in Windowed Mode*. I was wondering, if its possible to make a program run in a window? I was thinking it can be done with a batch file or something?
  3. If you mean drivers, then ya, I installed them.
  4. Ok, heres the thing. I bought some new speaker set (Logitech X-530) and a new sound card (Creative PCI 24 bit) The speaker set came with 1 Subwoofer and 5 speakers. Now, my sound is amazing, but one thing that worries me. Now my subwoofer plays, the main speaker(the one with the volume and on/off), and one other speakers play. The others dont. Is it speakers fault? Btw, the sound card support 5.1/6.1/and 7.1 my Speakers are 5.1 (Surround Sound)
  5. IE is a bitch with CSS.. a lot of stuff with firefox works fine with firefox..but IE..and sometimes Opera..just pisses me off
  6. Alrighty guys, heres my question. I had a spare HD, and I was like hell, I'll just install Ubuntu on it. So..ya Installing is pretty easy and things, but since I am a new Ubuntu user, I dont need the whole 80 GIG's of space on the hardrive. I was thinking of paritioning it. (20 GB's for Ubuntu, rest for Backup and Storage). ...but I have no idea how to parition with Ubuntu. I'm guessing I can use the installer CD I made, but won't it install ubuntu again? Is there any programs for Ubuntu, that can make a Fat32 Parition? One more thing. When I installed Ubuntu, I only had One hardrive hooked up to it, (took out the connector for my XP hardrive). When I buy a new a jumper (I lost my other one). I am going to make the Hardrive with Windows XP my master HD and the hardrive with Ubuntu my Slave one. Would I encounter any problems If I do this? Again, Right now, I only got the Ubuntu Hardrive hooked up to the mobo/power supply. Thanks Guys
  7. Ok, one extra question. Why are the jumpers used? Is it to identify which is master and which is slave? I was reading about master and slave drives, and it seems like, there is not much of a difference. The master is the drive that boots first. So do I need jumpers to differientce the difference between master and slave? Can I just set in the bios, the drive I want to boot first?
  8. So Storage Partition on the Slave Drive = Fat 32 See, thats what I used to do, I set the master drive to boot first. However, It's a pain cause if I wanted to let teh slave drive boot, I first had to get in bios and set it so slave drive boots first.
  9. I got two Hardrives, both Westeren Digital 80 GIG's (One is on 7200 RPM, the other 5200 RPM) Anyways, I want to make one of the HD's as a slave and one the master. On my Slave HD, I'm going to make two partitions (20 GB for Ubuntu, and the rest for just storage). Now, I know how to make a slave drive and all. (I would of already did it, if it wasnt for me loosing a jumper). Basically, I want to know, dose master and slave drives work like parition. Like can I install a bootloader, and I can boot into which drive I want? I also want to know what format, I should make my slave partition for storage. If your confused, let me put it like this: ------------------------------------------- 1) Two Hardrives 2) 1 80 HD at 7200 RPM (Westeren Digital) 3) 2 80 HD at 5200 RPM (Westeren Digital) 4) The 7200 RPM is going to me my master drive. It's what i'm using now, and it's on Windows XP Home. 5) I want to partion the 5200 RPM drive into two partitions. One 20 GB for linux and the rest for Storage or Backup's. ----Questions---- 1) How would I access my slave drive from when I'm booted into my master drive? Specificly, I wan't to access my storage parttion my slave drive. I'm guessing I have to make the storage partion in NTFS format? 2) On bootup, what drive does my automatically boot into? Slave Or Master? I'm guessing Master. But is there a way I can choose what drive I can boot into?
