    This may sound silly...

    This may sound silly...
    but I installed it but how do I start it up?:S I don't know where it's install to or anything.
    As you can probably tell I only have a slight knowledge (if any) of Mandrakelinux so I'm not very good.
    Thanks for all your help.

    I think you need to run
    Code:
    captive-install-acquire
    to find the Windows files it needs. Then you can make a directory and mount the NTFS partition in that directory. Something like
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/windows
    Code:
    mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
    should suffice. Then you can just
    Code:
    cd /mnt/windows
    and an ls should show you your files.

    it should be a command that you run in a terminal.

    No worries. I didn't have anyone around when I was a noob, which is part of the reason I'm happy to help. Let's see if it put that command on your machine; in a terminal, as root:

    Code:
    find / -name captive-install-acquire -print
