    im having some trouble here...

    the tutorial says its for redhat, im using suse.

    after installing the file, it says i should have this path " /etc/Pengaol/PengAol.conf "
    i noticed that this part of the instalation failed, somthing about not being able to write there, i cant put stuff in the media file either, 'access denied', this might be why.

    i need that file for access numbers and stuff, there are later errors aswell, but i believe there due to this, i dont think i have access to write to this driver for some reason, how do i change that?

    thanks

    ok, i found if i use the shell boot console that takes a password i can write in those places, but the installation doesnt seem to do that, it says complete, brings up no errors, doesnt mention that folder, and dosnt make it.

    ill just keep trying, ill suss it
