    Red Hat Linux Installation Problem

    I finally decided to take the plunge and learn Linux. Not only as an alternative to Microsoft but as a way of advancing my skills. But upon attempting installation, I've run into a snag. I downloaded Red Hat 7.3. When I say I downloaded it, I mean I found an ftp site and downloaded the entire...

    Need Help In Hosting My Own Website/Mail

    Thanks for the reply Rob. Here's what I want to do. Since I have my own domain registered, I set-up 2 e-mail accounts and have been using Outlook as my client, as well as web access from anywhere. I want to do that again. But I'd also like to set-up either an Exchange server or Linux mail...

    Need Help In Hosting My Own Website/Mail

    A few months ago, a friend of mine helped me register a domain and hosted it for me. Now he's getting out and I need to not only find a place to host, but also need to learn what to do. I saw the other thread regarding hosting and I've contacted a few companies to get the ball rolling. But...

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)

    Adam, That's a very interesting ancedote that I wasn't aware of. Can you point me to any reference materials so I can read up on that? And if that's the case, it doesn't seem to bother Williams, or so it seems. I downloaded AOTC and went back specifically to the Geonosis Battle, since it...

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)

    [Getting back to some real discussion........] I was wondering how many here subscribe to the Star Wars Insider. I ask because we've had the Soundtrack butchering debate off and on for quite some time. In the current issue (#061, Yoda cover), John Williams and George Lucas for that matter, say...

    Job Trouble: Anyone else feeling the heat?

    Well guys, still unemployed and frankly I'm getting sick and tired of doing nothing. There has been some optimism with a recent report: ITAA Report What pisses me off is the lack of interest. Most jobs I apply for don't have phone #'s to follow up with. It's so easy for these recruiters to...

    Linux Installation Help

    As I mentioned above, I downloaded the entire 5.81GB Red Hat 7.3 directory of a friendly FTP site. I know about the ISO images and thus that's why I had ISO #1 in the CD-ROM along with the boot floppy I created. So, I downloaded the entire directory but only burned the 3 ISO images onto CD. Does...

    Linux Installation Help

    I'm finally fed up with Microsoft and decided to learn a whole new world. I've made the decision to immerse myself into Linux and absorb everything I can. Besides scouring the Red Hat website, I've sought out other extremely informative Linux sites to memorize and digest as much as possible. I...

    How To Repair Internet Explorer

    Actually Brian, the features I don't like are minor in stature but I do use them all the time, and thus makes it a tad more time consuming but more frustrating than anything. 1) Full screen. In 5.5, you can just hit F11 to toggle between modes. In 6, you have to go to the View menu to switch...

    Great Books & the Great American novels

    Admitedly, I'm not as well read as I should be. There are many awesome books that I have not read. So I've been on this kick to catch up and read all of them so I can be clued in on why these books are so highly acclaimed. I went to the library today and checked out The Grapes Of Wrath by...

    How To Repair Internet Explorer

    No I haven't installed IE 6. There are a few subtle differences between it and 5.5 which I don't like. That's why I want to repair this version which has always worked flawlessly in the past. Somebody has to know how to repair IE in Win2K. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    Pioneer Sees Full Screen Going Dark

    There are a bunch of HD sports broadcasts these days. As was mentioned the NCAA ha done it. The PGA has done it. MLB (here in Chicago, the Cubs were broadcast in HD) has done it. The NFL (Super Bowl) has done it. Hell, even the NHL (I know of at least the NY Rangers) has done it. Oh yeah, the...

    How To Repair Internet Explorer

    I've been getting quite a few errors with IE 5.5 lately. I'm running [/b]Win2K Pro[/b]. I know in Win98 you can go to Add/Remove Programs, select IE, click Remove, and you get a dialog box with 3 choices and one is to repair. Not so In Win2K. IE is not listed in the Add/Remove box. I tried...

    thin man films on TCM heads up

    Thanks for the heads up. I wholeheartedly invite anyone who hasn't seen this bit of American cinematic history to do so. I couldn't wait for any station to broadcast these awesome films or deal with the chewed up VHS copies I had so I splurged on the LD Box Set. Best $100 I've ever spent.

    FS: Lexicon MC-12B

    Damn that's a sweet price. I do hope someone takes advantage of this. IMHO, this is THE mothership of all pre/pro's. If I wasn't unemployed and dead broke, I'd scratch and claw to land this baby. Good luck on your sale. And good luck with the Theta.

    Job Trouble: Anyone else feeling the heat?

    Frank, I think I answered that above in trying to gain employment at a home theater shop (i.e. alternative jobs). I'd have to sell my ass off to compensate for what I've been making the last 5 years though. But it doesn't make any sense if I take a low end job, not even in my career or skills...

    Job Trouble: Anyone else feeling the heat?

    Well, I don't feel so alone. But it sucks that we have such highly skilled labor in the best country in the world that cannot get work. Doesn't give much hope to others around the world if we can't get our act together. Anyone else?

    Job Trouble: Anyone else feeling the heat?

    Well, I fell victim to government budget cuts and lost my job a few weeks ago. I've been working consistently as a contractor in the IT industry for 5 years and have never had trouble getting any job. So after I was laid off unexpectedly, I started an eager search for a new job. And now 3 weeks...

    Laserdisc Player CLD-D99

    David, Please e-mail me the info on this technician as well. [email protected] BTW, I'd buy the CLD-99 but I'm currently unemployed. I've wanted one of these for years. Bad timing.

    What is causing my PC to reboot on it's own?

    Well Larry, I recently had the same problem from a brand new computer I built. Recently I wiped out my computer and re-installed the OS and all has been fixed so far. But I started a thread a while back that had many different suggestions: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...threadid=62034...
