i hexed the Windows Live Messenger file to install on Windows 2000 ran windows 2000 in vmware and it rolled back after install due to not having the XP API's installed. i managed to get the c++ libary witch was a work around for this problem and WLM now runs on my Windows 2000 Vmware. i tryed installing the pack on linux with succsess but WLM still says the same problem sad.gif..... anyone have any ideas? the APIs are installed and everything now. just got to get the above bugs out of the way.

Tryed to run WLMlight in Wine under Windows 2000 (No Luck .DLL Errors)

at the moment im using Linux under a vmWare on my windows pc (useing windows as main because im a college student and theres a lot of windows programs i need that cant emulate.) i finish college soon though and i can go back to linux for good its been far to long without it sad.gif. (and yes i no i could have done a boot option to much hassel no hard drive space at the time.)

ill probs need the drivers for Madriva 2006 (free edition). im thinking about using Suse though or gentoo whitch one do you thinks best to use? i do a lot of graphics work and programming aswell as internet browsing online shopping and so on....
