15:45 < Saab> i configured lilo to load linux from /dev/hdb
15:45 < Saab> its written to the master boot record in /dev/hda
15:47 < Krendoshazin> it's got nothing to do with lilo, if it boots, it's fine
15:47 < Saab> isn't lilo supposed to load the desktop?
15:48 < Krendoshazin> no, lilo boots the kernel
15:48 < Saab> i thought you could configure that in the lilo config file
16:03 < Saab> mm
16:03 < Saab> i'm viewing /etc/X11/xorg.conf but i don't know what i'm doing
16:04 < Babbing> does nvidia supply an xconfigurator?
16:04 < Krendoshazin> no
16:05 < Krendoshazin> you install it and then set nvidia as your driver
16:05 < Krendoshazin> xorgsetup can do that for you
16:05 < Saab> yeah but still it didnt work
16:06 < Saab> so i'm viewing the config file
16:07 < Krendoshazin> have you tried commenting out the ranges and seeing if the monitor's default values kick in
16:08 < Saab> nope
16:08 < Krendoshazin> most monitors these days should be able to tell the requester what it's ranges are
NB: translation: Why won't my bootloader configure and start X

19:49 < doomed> is nmap the only program to map microsoft networks?
19:50 < doomed> is there another program besides nmap to map networks?
19:50 < doomed> I heard there was a network logical volume something
19:50 < laker_jedi> you could play around with ARP if you want, but that could get tricky
19:50 < doomed> laker_jedi to map networks?
19:51 < laker_jedi> doomed: theoretically.
19:51 < doomed> laker_jedi 'cause listen to this... when I had windows
19:51 < doomed> I install linux on another partition
19:51 < doomed> and I was able to check the entire NTFS files
19:52 < doomed> bypassing the password and all
19:52 < laker_jedi> I think we're talking about different things
19:52 < laker_jedi> whatever.
19:52 < doomed> laker_jedi how to mount microsoft partitions over a network?
19:52 < laker_jedi> doomed: smbmount?!!!#!@#!!
19:53 < laker_jedi> hehe
19:53 < laker_jedi> Samba is what you are looking for
19:53 < laker_jedi> doomed: you there?
19:53 < doomed> laker_jedi so after checking the network with nmap I go an check mount it?
19:53 < loft306> rofl
19:54 < doomed> is that true?
19:54 < laker_jedi> doomed: why would you check it with nmap? They're your shares, so you should know whether or not they exist.
19:55 < doomed> laker_jedi NOT MINES... other places...
19:55 < doomed> you know exploration
19:55 < laker_jedi> doomed: sorry, but we are not allowed to foster illegal behavior.
19:55 < laker_jedi> I will be reporting you to the powers that be.
19:55 < laker_jedi> Have a nice day.
19:55 < doomed> what??
19:55 < laker_jedi> loft306: I'm reporting him to you
19:55 < laker_jedi> :D
19:56 < doomed> mm.. well one time here they explained to me
19:56 < starrats> I fully agree, with you laker_jedi
19:56 < doomed> hey I am not talking about illegal stuff
19:56 < doomed> I am curious
19:57 < doomed> 'cause when it did that to my computer
19:57 < doomed> I wondered
19:57 < doomed> if this happened with my NTFS... how ahbout others?
19:58 < laker_jedi> doomed: that's illegal.
19:58 < doomed> where how?
19:58 < doomed> I've never heard that seen that
19:58 < laker_jedi> doomed: last time I checked, there are one or two laws against "exploring" other people's boxen
19:59 < doomed> mmm. k then
19:59 < starrats> very illegal
19:59 < doomed> how come I did on my computer?
19:59 < laker_jedi> doomed: you said about two minutes ago you want to do this to other people's computers.
20:00 < doomed> yeah my friends'
20:00 < doomed> they allow me
20:00 < doomed> mmm.. I guess this is not the place to learn worldly knowledge
20:00 < doomed> lofty ideals
20:00 < starrats> that's still illegal
NB: translation: doomed, what a fitting name, he certainly belongs on script kiddie irc servers

Ok, so I've decided to return to Windows. The problem is, my boot disc doesn't work. I can run setup.exe off the disc with Wine, but it doesnt work well and crashed. When I try to boot from the disc, I get the basic "Press any key to boot from disc...' I do what it tells me and I see "Setup is inspecting your hardware configuration..." for about a second, and then the screen goes black, and I've waited for hours (literally) and it hasn't done anything. I bought a SkipDoctor and resurfaced the disc, but still no dice.
Is there any way that my Linux distro (Fedora Core 3) could be preventing Windows from doing anything to my computer?
I'm prepared to pay 170 dollars for a new copy of Windows, but I'd hate to dish out all that cash and find out that it only does the same thing as my boot disc. My boot disc, by the way, is the original one that came with the software packages that were packaged in with my computer. When I still had windows, I used it to reformat many times, and it worked fine.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

00:03 < KyKo> Me!
00:03 < linkinp4rk410> HURRAH!
00:03 < linkinp4rk410> I'm hoping someone can help me with this real fast
00:03 < linkinp4rk410> How does one get out of X?
00:04 < Krendoshazin> ctrl alt backspace should do it
00:05 < linkinp4rk410> I'll try that!
00:05 < linkinp4rk410> But I'm trying to do it in a Guest OS in VMware
00:05 < KyKo> Or boot into recovery mode.
00:05 < KyKo> I believe.

00:07 < linkinp4rk410> at startup
00:07 < linkinp4rk410> And now can't change that file or add myself to that group becuz I can't get out of X
00:07 < linkinp4rk410> Did that make any sense to anybody?
00:07 < theDeadlyBulb> try starting a term
00:07 < theDeadlyBulb> or switching to a vc
00:08 < theDeadlyBulb> and logging in as root
00:08 < linkinp4rk410> What do you mean?
00:08 < theDeadlyBulb> ehem

*TITLE*why do some commands run, while others i have to specify directory?
sorry if the title doesent make much sence, limited space you know....
why do some commands run just by typing them in, like sudo, ls, pwd, groups, btdownloadgui.py, etc...
and others I have to be specific about the directory, like if i try ifconfig i get:
[root@LEACH ~]$ ifconfig
bash: ifconfig: command not found
but /sbin/ifconfig works:
[root@LEACH draldrich]# ifconfig
bash: ifconfig: command not found
[root@LEACH draldrich]# /sbin/ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0A:E6:97:34:61
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::20a:e6ff:fe97:3461/64 Scope:Link
......bla bla bla bla
so why do I have to specify the directory for some commands, but not others?
is there a way to make it so I dont have to specify the directory?
is this a redhat/fedora "thing"?
...just trying to understand.....

I decided to make use of a machine that has been hidden in the closet for awhile.
As of right now, its a dual boot win98se/redhat 6
about 45gb of hd space
233mhz pent 2
i want to make a dns server, ftp, and all that good stuff. everything i need to put stuff on the web. Will Samba do all that for me? I never worked with it much before, and when I did, I was really confused. Any suggestions, thanks a lot!
