    No you are wrong you can install windows again it will overwrite the MBR but all you do is get the boot disk that you created out and boot up from that when in linux if using Lilo type -> lilo. This will write lilo to the MBR again, And for grub IIRC its -> grub -> setup hda. Problems fixed you now have your boot manager back

    hey welcome back Hotwheelz.
    Quickdraw returns ... more news at 11!

    I like to try all flavors of the rainbow. Running SuSE 10.1 on my laptop, Windows XP on my desktop, and an Mac OS X on my Mac powerbook.

    Wouldn't it be a better decision for a newbie to use RedHat or Mandrake instead of Slackware? I heard that Slackware is really only for advanced Linux users. I dual boot with RedHat and Win98 and all works fine.
    I don't even think to try Slackware for now, I know too little about Linux.
    Probably you wouldn't have any problems if you have just stuck up to RedHat.(or tried Mandrake, this is also very good for newbies like us).

    if someone could provide a place for them, i could upload all five of the suse 8.2 CDs in iso form (if i could remember the command for copying a CD to an iso....)
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    I mailed SUSE about something like that some time ago, and they said that they really didn't care..

    Well, theres been a delay. Since I am in college I only work the weekends. And since I only work the weekends I dont see my boss. So, I have to get ahold of him and see when he wants to get this HD and when he wants it put in. Once I do that, then I get a free HD and get to play with Linux

    BTW, thanks for the welcome

    The 5 CD version of SuSE 8.2, is that the profesional edition vs the personal edition? If so what is so limiting in the personal edition ( which is the distro I'm currently trying to learn on) ?

    Short of a do all server functionality, it does seem to have or you can get the basic server apps already. I don't get it.
