We're actually on irc.blitzed.net in channel #linuxhelp.

I wouldn't recommend compiling your kernel right now. If it's simple loading a module, go ahead, if you need help doing specific things, post the here.

It's very hard to tell people how to do things if they're not specific as to what they want to do, or problems they encounter doing it.

Check out the Guides page on this site, there is alot of useful information.

What are the words you don't know about?

Make sure your / partition is bootable, AND the windows partition. Then install LILO on the MBR. Try that, if it doesn't work paste your lilo.conf stripped down here. (No comments!)

I have a similar setup here, 40GB HDD, win2k pro on first 20GB, Debian Linux unstable in the second 20GB, I have for more partitions then you though wink.gif

What is a ctrl+alt+canc? you have a canc key? Try using ctrl+alt+backspace. Also try changing to a virtual terminal - ctrl+alt+F1/F2/F3 etc...

You'll have to setup X to stop this, XF86Setup, xf86cfg, or X -configure will do this, but you'll have to get to the command line first wink.gif

You fail to mention what ftp server you are running. That behaviour is weird, the ftp client shouldn't download the link file, if a link is to a directory, it is treated as a directory itself with most ftp clients. What ftp clients are they using, how are you linking directories?

Try before you buy? You're kidding me. You just infringed on compyrights. Bad... you know you had no itentions of buying... LOL. All kidding aside, you don't even have to buy it wink.gif

When you boot, if you are presented with the CLI then login and type startx. You may need to configure the Xserver, to do this use XF86Setup, or xf86cfg, or X -configure.

I think that card uses the ne module, no drivers are necessary, the kernel contains all that is needed. Try running

modprobe ne

you may have to specify the io if it's an isa card like this:

modprobe ne io=0x240

Replace 0x240 with the proper io, you can just keep jumping the io to find the proper one...

like this

modprobe ne io=0x200
modprobe ne io=0x220
modprobe ne io=0x240
modprobe ne io=0x260
modprobe ne io=0x280

etc... wink.gif

Don't run the frambuffer server, run XF86Setup, xf86cfg, or X -configure.

The reason I give you three options is cause I'm not sure which one to use, they've all been in use at one point or another, it's been like 2 years since I've used X windows. One of them will work though.

Try using just the standard XF86_SVGA, which you'll see when you run one of the above commands.

there is imps/2.

Section "Pointer"
Protocol "IMPS/2"
Device "/dev/psaux"
SampleRate 60
BaudRate 1200
ZAxisMapping 4 5
Buttons 3
EndSection

If there isn't, and that gives you an error, then download Xfree86, cause you're not running it. IMPS/2 has been around for as long as I can remember.

That means, it is still there tongue.gif

Looks to me like you're trying to start multiple instances of MySQL, check all your bootup scripts, crontab entries, etc... If it is happening every 10 minutes, it sounds like something is schedules to run every ten minutes, check crontab entries for ALL users. You can find these in /var/spool/cron/crontabs/

other=/dev/hda1
table=/dev/hda
label=windows

Make sure your running the browser as the same user that ran "startx". I'm not sure about suse X security measures, I'll try to look into it if that doesn't work, let me know.

open a terminal window (xterm, rxvt, eterm to mention a few) they should be listed on your menu somewhere, and type konqueror or "lynx www.google.com" if they connect, your firewall is not set to high, you need to update mozilla.

Mozilla could just be crashing, try a different browser, you may have konquror installed, or better, use lynx from a console/terminal screen. I highly doubt your firewall is is closing mozilla, cause that's not what firewalls do, but if your convinced, run

rgrep "high" /etc/*

And it should return something along the lines of firewall="high".

It is actually possible to run linux off a cdrom, however, if your providing any services (http, smtp, ssh, etc...) it's not wise, or have a harddrive installed, and chroot them. The reason is it's not possible to update/patch the cdrom containing the linux distribution.

You can install Debian on a 200MB harddrive less for just the base system, also check out distributions on floppies, they require no harddrive at all, Trinux comes to mind...

Those boxes are good for alot of stuff, I have a remote logging machine here that is a P75Mhz with 16MB RAM, it provides ssh, apache to the management machine, and remote logging facilty to the other servers on my network. It also functions as a firewall, blocking everything from everywhere, except dport 514 from the servers it provides logging facilities, and dport 22 and 80 from the management machine, everything else is blocked. It also has file integrity scripts running, that check system files bi hourly, and mail anaomalies to me.

In essence, if you're a authorized log client, you're allowed to connect to syslogd, not ssh or http. If you're a authorized management machine, you're allowed to connect via ssh and http, not syslog. There is only 3 open ports on the box, and every angle is filtered.

If the perimeter is breached, you can be almost certain the logging server has copies.

As you can see, this poor old P75 can do quite alot for it's processing power, try running the equivalent with Microsoft products on a p75, Win2k wouldn't even install on it.

Other possible uses (I've already mentioned shells servers, web servers, remote logging) are dhcp server, sandboxes to test vulnerabilities/exploits on without jeopardizing your production machines, mail servers, time servers for your organization, etc... Anyone throwing out a box >50Mhz, contact me, what is no good for you, I can give a nice home to smile.gif

It means something went wrong. I'm no fan of linuxconf, and haven't used it for years, BUT what you describe, and what happened, doesn't make sense unless there is a BIG glitch in linuxconf.

Are you sure you delete the fstab entry for the "new mount"?

You're saying it doesn't give you a login prompt, but gives you a sh-2.04 prompt... That's not good, you're given a shell without loging in?

Don't use telnet, or ftp. Use ssh, which provides the functionality of both, but handles them securly. Telnet and FTPd tranfer username, passwords, and other data that you may not want people to see, in plain text. There is a couple SSH guide on this site, check out the guides section.

If you are really hard pressed on getting telnet and ftp specifically, and don't care about the security issues, check /etc/inetd.conf or depending on your distribution, and what kind of inetd it runs, it may be /etc/xinetd.conf, and make sure telnet and ftp are uncommented (lack a # at the beginning of the line).

Also check to see if telnetd and ftpd (wu, pro, or the million others) are actually installed.

Download the redhat boot disks, and if you have hi speed, look into "Network Installtion", I haven't used RedHat since version 5.2, so I'm not sure about the specifics, but it was really easy to do then, which probably makes it easier now wink.gif
