    Ok, I've installed Ubuntu. It was working fine. It even detected my modem and I was browsing the net happily until I decided to install Nvidia drivers for my GeForce 4 MX440. I installed the drivers using Synaptic package manager. I installed the package nvidia-glx and then enabled it using "sudo nvidia-glx-config enable". I got an Md5 checksum error. But I kinda removed it by executing the command it said. After that I restarted the pc. But the X server or the X windows failed to start and got all the gibberish screen thing.
    So what to do?

    enter into the lower runlevel (termianl only) and install your nvidia drivers again
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-common
    Code:
    sudo nvidia-glx-config enable
    i hope that helps

    Well I've finally been able to install the drivers. Apparently there were some extra lines to be added in some file because of my Geforce4. But I've got a new problem. At boot time there appears some king of error "there are differences in your boot sector and its backup" and then it displays the errors I think. After that it runs some kind of utility called "dosfsck" which takes a long time and ends up fixing nothing. So what to do?

    I've solved that problem by editing /etc/fstab so that it wont check my other partitions at boot.
    Another thing I'm having problems with is file type associations. Whenever I open an html file it asks me wether to run it, display it etc. Also how do I associate certain files with programs?

    hi malikdaud !!!

    right click on the file and select "open with" --- " other "
    specify the program in which you wanna open this file and check the box "Remember application association with this type of file"
