    3 easy questions.... I hope...

    First post, thanks for helping!

    I have a few basic questions on a new install of Mandriva 2007.

    I would like to save the boot messages when the computer starts as there are a couple things I see going by too fast that I want to know about. I opened boot.log but it is apparently empty. How do I save and view that information?

    I installed the packages and dependencies for Bittorrent, and have a Torrent file I would like to start. I can't find the application program though. Where does it launch from?

    When I started K3B it warned me about running without root privelages. I have not found instructions to grant privelages in K3B. Does anyone have a link to instructions on giving K3B root privelages?

    Thanks for you patience!

    You can view the boot messages by running the dmesg command or taking a look at by doing
    $cat /var/log/dmesg | less
    Some of the boot time messages are stored in various subdirectories of /var/log.

    For bittorrent, I think a GUI like Ktorrent or Azureus is a better option than using the native bittorrent tools.

    As for k3b, try running k3bsetup.
