    Since this forum mainly doesn't deal with Windows programs, you might find better luck if you look at the DC++ support forum at http://dcplusplus.sf.net/.

    i hate that program with a vengance, it failed to isntall 3/4 times, and when it did it refused to load.

    from what i was told, u have to add a server ip/seach for a server before u can search for files.

    From the few times that I've used DC++, I can't say that I have had a problem with it.
    On the other hand, since I don't even have Windoze at home, I haven't used it too much. Since it is the most popular DC client, I do find it hard to believe that it wouldn't be working well, though.

    /me thinks it the way i "modify" windoze so its runs better...

    i dont think it likes having the windows dir on a seperate partition than everythign else .. or the inasane number fo bacth files so that i can type linux commands and have them work. (i got sick of "ls: commadn not found" after about a hundred times)

    Modifying Windoze is seldom a good idea in my experience. First of all, it makes it much more error prone if you don't do stuff the M$ way. Second, it makes it much harder to reinstall it once in a while. It is now more than a year since I stopped completely from using Windoze, but when I still did, I had modified my W98 so much that I didn't want to reinstall it, and that simply wasn't fun. It crashed on me at least five times a day. And that would have been a lucky day. And I couldn't reinstall...

    That's actually my primary reason for using GNU/Linux instead. It not only allows for modification, it actually encourages it and wants you to modify it. And you never need to reinstall it.

    i know all about w98 not reinstalling... it kept coming up with random "cannot install to compressed hard drive" errors and other things that i dont use. in the end i installed it to another hdd and copied all the files to this 1 before i let it do its first boot setup crap.

    the lengths i go to for an OS i will probably never touch once i get it running... i have too much free time...
