    Okay well I completely wiped everything off put windows back on and the loaded zipslack. Now all the files that it is looking for in the "lib" directory have been renamed. So when it loads it cannot find the files it is looking for. What would have caused this???

    Hi 1badex96!

    Which Windows distro did you install before and now?

    Did you have a successful X windows installation in your ZipSlack also? Which Windows Managers did you use?

    If you did it with XP, i think there coud/may be a problem since usually XP is using NTFS not Fat32 but it can be converted by partition managers such as Partition Magic.

    Please tell me if you had it on an XP NTFS filesystem, I haven't tried that.

    I appreciate it very much!
