Default Re: Linux Games


Your assumption about my experience is just about right, but it wouldn't matter if it wasn't, because I never take offense to someone trying to help. I scanned over your post, and it appears to indicate the procedure that I have used to date, however I have put it on hold until I know how to deal with the updating of the kernel. Currently, I am using Grub. LiLo was in the past tense. Your statement about adding a menu entry for the kernel, caught my eye. I'm uncertain now, what I did or did not do. Are you referring to the grub/ Can you give me any specifics on how this is done? I can remember doing alot of editing with the help of a friend, but that help came after the fact, and it did not cure the problem. I have four HDs. as you will see in my signature. XP is on the first SATA partition...E:, and SuSe is on the First partition of the first IDE...J:.

EDIT: I spoke a bit hastily, the XP on the SATAs is corrupt, and I have an archive on the second partition of the second IDE drive D:

Perhaps it would just be better to paste etc/fstab:

Between some failed installations, and the differences in the way that SuSe and XP designates drives and partitions, I tend to get a bit confused. You can ignore the VFAT and NTSF installations on hdd1 and sdb1.
