At what point do you get the error. You say it's on the boot, it is on the bios boot, or the linux boot? if you dual os, is it on all the boots for the os?

Just trying to track down a couple of possibilities

Hiya.

It's been a while since I tried to tackle my laptop problem. But i'm back as i've got the weekend.

I know what I want, i just can't get. I'm looking for a boot disk that will;

a) reformat and re-organise my partions (single hd, 2 partions that need to be merged back to 1)
b ) Network support, so i can d'l a distro of some sort.
c) Must be on floppy(s)

Any help would be warmly appreciated.

You need to access the situation. How much space do you have? How much do you want for linux / windows.

If you move all your system files from one partition to another your gonna screw EVERYTHING up . . . your best deleting it and starting again once you've got your new partitions.

I'm sorry for coming across as if your wasting my time, that's not what I meant. If you were asking a specific question such as what does this file we can give you a cut and dry answer, but i feel as if I can't give you the answer that you are after because I don't know exactly what you want to know.

Okay, let me call a spade a spade.

If your doing a play off between the two OS's, games = windows wins 9/10 time. Sound = windows wins, programming = linux, price = linux, customization = linux ease of use = windows. It's a play off between the both and if you want to get the best results your'll need to stick to multi boot, which is the best of both. Therefore don't mix them . . .

If your after advice about what to do, give us a problem and we can sort it out. Saying that you have space problems and don't know what to do, saying your a newbie, we give you advice then there it is, don't smack it down.

It sounds like you want the best of everything and that doesn't always come in a nice GUI, you're gonna have to spend time, go out and buy a book, read it, buy another book, mess around on your system, make mistakes and when it doesn't work come back and ask us. I mean like, help i can't mount my hd? My system doesn't support MTRR's? that we can help you with.

General advice we can help you with, but when you don't have a problem and are trying to teak your system's hd's like you are, these are decisions like you are trying to make, you need to make them yourself, and make mistakes. If you just copy your sys files the chances are that they won't work. Just reinstall on another partition.

As such you don't actually have a problem, therefore we can't actually help you at all. Go make changes, screw it up and come back in my opinion! Then we can help you. But tweaking your system like your doing, you need to go away and say to yourself I want to do this, oh i've done it but this doesn't work, or i've done it and it works.

Instead of doing that, what's to stop you spliting the large windows one (like your planning to do) and just mount it as a linux partition, install your games on that and then it's all your problems solved in one move, no moving of linux, no problem sharing 4 gigs . . . etc etc.

Sounds like your trying to do to much on one machine/hd.

I suggest that you install your games on only one OS and thats that.

My suggest is that if you got an install and your trying to get new space, instead of moving partitions just give another partition over to the both (windows and linux) that way you get the best of both worlds, if you don't need to give access to windows, just give it to Linux and be done with it . . . I wouldn't try and move stuff across a partition unless you really can do you boot stuff, your fstab well and other config files. Everything will be set to work on your current partition.

Hay, warheros is just trying to help, you must understand your questions arn't really clear, it doesn't seem like you know what you want to do so it's bit hard to figure out a solution.

Google first . . . as most of the problems i see can be solved using google. e.g. ""partition" +howto +linux"

I'm not sure what your trying to do . . . put I poke out an answer or two.

If your trying to add a new partition to linux (a windows partition like it sounds you are doing) all you need to do is reformat the partion with a format programme and change it to an ext3 format. Then get it to mount at bootup by editing the /etc/fstab.

That way you don't need to backup linux and you get the space you need for all your gaming.

Hiya. I suggest you try "reconfigure-xserver xfree86-xfree86.conf" from command. I think it's a command like that and set up X to use your type of keyboard and mouse!

I read a post somewhere else that says . . ..

Quote

"Change it in your computer's BIOS. There should be a setting opting whether your numlock is on or off at bootup.

Windows is just probably just turning numlock on automatically and linux is leaving it to whatever the BIOS wants to do."

Let us know how you get on with this.

Warhereos, Try googling for a digital CD player for windows. You might have more luck that way.

What windows OS do you use?

Looks like you'll have to write a module and then use insmod <newmod.c> and that'll work.

But I have no idea how to make a new module, but I'll hang around till someone else knows, and I'll learn as well.

At a guess that's because they aren't mounted. I.e it shows only the partition size and space left. You can get that info without mounting the drives.
