    checked the hash after downloading. they match number for number, letter for letter. off to burn it now with write verify.

    Re: some new hardware on the way

    probably the media itself but it could be the drive. Maybe try a slower burn speed on the next try.

    Re: some new hardware on the way

    well the cd passed all verifications, from the checksum up to the on disc check. tried running the live version on my wifes rig (didnt want to risk screwing up my main rig) and seemed to go ok for a minute. was attempting to make this post on it but it locked up. i just figured it had something to do with the fact that it was running off of the CD.

    going to try and install it tomorrow...or maybe saturday.
    hmm...

    If you 're sure about the drive, it 's a bad medium.
    That 's 'the' reason why I do write verify. You never know if that disc is 100% OK if you don't !

    If you have enough RAM, it should work.
    When you or it start another app. (or just exe) and that is not in RAM yet, it needs to get that from the CD [ like everything else), so you just need to be patient till it starts (you can follow the action on your optical's indicator LED(s) ]

    I 've only run a few KNOPPIX versions Live before I attempted this Xubuntu I 'm running now.
    Just before the latter, my Brother-in-Law had installed Mandriva 2006 for me.
    I 'd run into a bit of trouble with that ...

    I decided to start afresh with SMP on Xubuntu.

    & here I am, just over the 30 finished WU's mark !


    That 's nearly 30,000 points from 1 rig !

    It has almost finished 30 WU's since I started with it on 12-09-2006 ...

    If you go into the browser, you can go Bookmarks / Ubuntu and free software links ...

    Are you sure it wasn't detected and installed ???

    Which package/distro did you use (in the end) ?
