  2. Yeah, I had the same problem - you need to format the partition first using 3rd party software, then reboot and retry the install. LH won't format it for you. I've actually installed 5048 on a second (8gb) disk in a virtual machine running XP RME, as setup seemed to hang doing a single os install (on vmware 5). It's installed fine, and the vmware tools went on without a hitch.
  3. I wondered this too, but 1) I don't like codec packs (too troublesome!) 2) 51 pages is a little too much to trawl though for such a small piece of info! So, why not access gspot through "Open With"? Just browse to gspot.exe and select it. You can even pre-set what files gspot appears for using this proggie here - http://www.baxbex.com/ox2.html. - and it's free for home use. Hope this helps!
  4. So, what you're saying is, that even though I have an OS that does all I need and want it to, I should fork out £250+ for Longhorn the day it ships? Hmmm. Following that logic through, should I sell my car and buy a new one every time a new model appears? Of course not. I'll upgrade to LH at some point no doubt, but not straight away, not just because it's there. Which is the more bull headed? Waiting until there's a need to upgrade, or rushing out to buy it just because it's new? The only ones to lose out will be the early adopters, who'll still be acting as unpaid bug-testers. Me? I'll wait til it's stable, and then decide.

  6. If anyone is into UK rap/hip-hop, like The Streets, or that sorta thing, I'd recommend checking out the above mentioned GLC (Also known - being Welsh - as The Beastie Boyos ). I'd have to say that due to the language used, and the subject matter, they're really not suitable for under 18's. But, if you're over that age, have a good sense of humour, and like a bit o' hip-hop, check them out. Radio 1 has (occasionally) been playing their single "Guns Don't Kill People, Rappers Do", and there's another single out soon, "Half Man Half Machine" which will appeal especially to anyone 30 or over. You knows it makes sense GLC Website (mp3s are available on the site)
  7. Yeah, I've got a soft spot for them myself, since about '88 - a little too quirky for me though. I take it you've been to their website? There are free mp3s (with the newsletters), news on a new album, and various other things.
  8. Jet Set Willy all the way!
  9. Good work fellas, it's just started to annoy me too, the context menu filling up (Usually I've had to re-install by the time its getting full... ). The top link of ravashaak's post sorted me out - cheers mate!
  10. Be careful with Fedora Core 2 - under certain circumstances, the installer (Anaconda) makes changes to the hard drive geometry which can lead to Windows XP - in a dual boot, same drive scenario - NOT BOOTING. No data is lost, but it can be rather arsey to sort out. Have a look at this at redhat.com, and this at oreillynet.com, before diving straight in. If you pass the HDD parameters to the installer then Anaconda won't make any changes, so you should be ok, but IMHO I'd go for FC1 - stable, dual boots nicely, and a good all round linux desktop.
  11. Well appparently now, if you try to install SP2 with a pirated key, Microsoft will send a team to your house who will come in and hide your car keys, spit in your yoghurt, laugh at your families photographs, scuff your wooden floors, mis-match every pair of socks you own, and remove all soft furnishings and replace them with splinter-covered orange crates. Well, thats what I've heard....
  12. Yep, Apple monitors work just fine with an adaptor plug - mate of mine got a 21" Apple monitor for a song, and it worked just fine.
  13. Have a look at this - http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=836983. Its for Win2k, but the same procedure should probably help
