My brother has been touching the computer and he has fu**ed it....
Every time i want to enter Windows XP i can't because an error of "Explorer" appears....
I've installed LinSpire in another hard drive...
I'm planning to backup all the files from the other hard drive into DVDs, and then format my hard drives and reinstall windows xp.

The things is that i don't really know too much abour Linux and i don't know how to make DVDs with my backups

Need backup biggrin.gif

First of all, Open up a terminal and then type in

In konqueror go into the "Storage Media" and see if your harddisk is already mounted (there should be a harddisk icon..just check its contents). If its mounted then type in the terminal :

You can use k3b to write the files onto a DVD smile.gif Just see the K3B handbook (press F1) for details on how to write a Data DVD..

My laptop came with linspire pre-installed and I just could not figure out where to go next with it. Nearest I could tell, it had no windowing system, no GUI installed, just a stripped down bare-bones command set only with no easy path to install the rest.

So I just wiped it and installed Xandros. Which went a lot better.
