  3. I have spent the last month trying to upgrade to XP but my computer just wont let me... i have tried XP home, Xp proffessional and MCE and they all give me stop out errors when i ride the CPU to a point or run the computer for about an hour. Converting to Linux was my last attempt before going back to ME. It seems my computer is set in to only run ME however I ran linux for a long time whilst running the CPU up and i didnt get any stop outs. I was running Fedora Core 5 but i got errors when trying to install anything.. including opening the install program.. i did some googling and found some review of FC5 being poop and stated that error. I then moved to Ubuntu which seems rather familiar to Fedora. My biggest problem is trying to get my wireless card to work... if i could get that to work i reckon i could manage it.. but i just cant get anyone to explain to me in complete english how to get it to run. If you could be that one person to explain where i can get the right driver.. i would love you to peices.. just thinking of running ME again. My network card is a Netgear WG311t. I have established that it has a Atheros chipset and beleive that madwifi is what i need to get... however there is nowhere that says in big letters "This is the file you need to download" ! Please help me. I have lived in the Windows world for a long time... My experience of Linux previous to the last 4 days was a newspaper article.. which led me into trying it out after trying to run 4 or 5 different Windows versions. Bruce
  4. Hi I fully installed Ubuntu Breezy onto my computer as my Windows ME seemed to fail on me. I tried to work in Ubuntu but found it to difficult and I stumbled across the Recovery Disk and Master Disks to restore my system back to ME. I ran these disks and after the remastering has finished.. upon loading the hard drive.. i get GRUB trying to load up. I get about 2 minutes of "GRUB GRUB" running down my screen and then eventually "GRUB FAILED". Does anyone know how to get rid of the grub system. I have tried formatting my hard drive via the Restore disk and then ran the remastering but found the same problems. At the moment I have a very nice empty box of a computer... please help me get back to the dreary Windows Millenium Edition days. Bruce
  5. Thanks man I'll have a look at this now.. I have been experiencing some wierd things happening when I try to install anything. I get an error message saying: unable to receive software information... i get this also if i try to acces the add/remove programs tool. I have tried to install mplayer through yum and that fails too. thanks
  6. Hi I have just installed Fedora Core 5 and I am starting off with trying to get myself connected to the internet using my Netgear WG311t wireless adapter. I probably couldn't be much more of a linux noob right now although Fedora does appear to be rather friendly. I have been frantically googling to find me some drivers but all links i find seem to be dead Please help me Bruce
