Hi guys, as with most of the people here with problems, i'm a newbie, just installed mandrake linux yesterday on a new partition along with <whispers> "windows" <gasp>. Everything seems to be working fine. A few little niggles. The main thing is my USB Motorola Surfboard modem. It works fine under linux and (did) windows. But for some reason after i use the net with linux and boot into windows, the modem stops working and wont connect. I have to cut the power to it to reset it everytime i wanna use it again. I want to know why this is happening and how i can stop it? is it because i'm not shutting it down properly in linux? If someone could let me know so i can solve the problem directly rather than a stopgap siolution (like running the "reset to factory settings" program everytime i start windows")
Any help would be appreciated.
Plus, anyone know of a good partitioner for linux like partition magic? I wanna increase the size of my linux partition without losing data on my windows partition <forgot to whisper that name , sorry>
