i had previously tried what you had said, but in fact on first boot was where it loaded that program in windows off the disk. So halt your words champ.
again, i am new to using linux on my own computer. i have partitaned hard drives with windows and mac OSs, but in the manner of which linux must be done.
so yes, i did know what you you thought i did not. i have not had the time as of yet to troubleshoot the situation, so the post was to get feedback to save myself time for when i do.
your post does infact confirm my reasoning, saturnataku, despite your critisim.
Thanks for the help.
