one thing I find strange from what you have said is that mdk would have installed gcc but not binutils heh
Thanks for the advice Moled, I'm gonna check out that util now. I have one question though, when I check my agp status, it shows:

Status: Enabled
AGP Rate: 4x (max for my rig)
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Disabled

My questions, what is SBA, and how do I turn on Fast Writes and SBA? I assume its in some config file somewhere, but is it as simple as editing the "status" file to show enabled? I would assume not.

Oh, and fastwrites is enabled in my bios just to let you know.

As far as mdk not installing binutils, ya after doing some reading (I'm quite new to linux, as you might have guessed) I discovered that this was strange. Why wouldn't binutils get installed? I know I didn't conciously tell mdk NOT to install it. Strange.

And Derek, I'm glad you got that worked out. Game on!
