    Sorry forgot about that, was so dizy with the advanced staff you were throwing at me.

    Hope I'll get a HD if a PC fair comes this way.

    As you like bikes here are mine, perhaps you haven't seen these old types before.

    The Douglas, found in E.Africa under a Mango tree, British make, 1923, 2 & 3/4HP horizontally opposed fore & aft engine, three gears, no clatch or kikstart, V-belt drive from gearbox to rear wheel.

    Norton 1967 750hp

    Sunbeam 5hp, tween in line, coil ignition, wet sump lubr. shaft worm drive, balloon tyres, modeled in Eingland after the war on the Gernan army BMW bike.

    Thanks for all the help ..........nick

    Nice Pictures Nick. I am partial to the Norton. I had a 850 Commando in the 70's when I was a Marine. It was Fast and Nimble. Wish I still had that one but couldn't keep em all. I like the looks of the S7 also.

    Just in case you feel more comfortable using Gparted to format a hardrive instead of cfdisk, You can follow my instructions for making the partitions using Gparted also and just point DSL installer to your made partitions. Or just follow my borrowed cfdisk instructions. Either way it will work. The little girl that ended up with the compaq is quite good and comfortable playing games and surfing the net and installing stuff with apt-get after I showed her. Didn't take long for her to fill up that 2 gig hardrive. Have fun with it. Roky

    Sorry to bother you again.

    Inserted GParted CD & it says "....No Operating System....".

    I am not trying to install it on HD, just run it off CD. .......nick

    Try Older version of Gparted from List of isos since your lappy is low end. I am not home right now to see what version I have that boots up on low end gear, but I know it is a older version. If Puppy can boot, you may try using the Gparted version in it to format also.

    tried both of these with no luck gparted-livecd-0.1 & gparted-live-0.4.6-1

    Tried also Dos 5, the only thing that goes in is Win98 Startup flopy & scandisk or fdisk from it gives same no OS.
