    Ubuntu, Grub and my disk config don't get along

    Seriously, I don't think I've done anything wrong here, but it's killing me trying to figure out why Ubuntu's grub boot loader can't seem to figure out how to boot from my root partition. Suse does quite fine so I'm not sure what Ubuntu's issue is. Regardless, here's the rundown. 18GB SCSI...

    Firefox vs Konqueror vs Epiphany

    I'm running FC3 and have all three browsers installed on my system...From what I've found, Konqueror is infinitely faster than Firefox...Epiphany seems to be every bit as snappy as Konqueror, but Firefox justseems to be laggy and take forever to switch tabs, redraw pages, etc.I've tested under...

    Can't get nforce drivers to install in FC3

    So yeah, I'm running Fedora Core 3, kernel 2.6.10-1.737 and I cannot for the life of me get the nvidia nforce drivers to install... I download and run the NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0292-pkg1.run and the installer runs... so I tell it to install the audio driver (don't need the eth driver) and it...

    Maximum CAT5e cable length?

We're running the cable from a switch out to a detatched portion of the house where my roommate's brother has a recording studio... I'm not quite sure of the distance, but as long as he can keep...

    XP UPnP aware apps?

    Anyone had any experience with it yet? As of right now, I've discovered that when using XP SP2 on my ICS host computer, Azureus automatically sends a UPnP message to that computer to forward the correct ports and which computer to forward them to (mine). Also, Rise of Nations appears to do this...

    Live search type feature for Windows?

    Basically what I'd like to find is an extension for Explorer (or replacement even) that gives you a search bar and allows you to type in it to narrow down what you're viewing as you type. Much like the library features in iTunes & Winamp. I know longhorn is supposed to have a similar feature...

    to upgrade or not to upgrade, that is the question

I'm thinking about going to the A64, but it seems that AMD is about to make a switch to Dual Channel DDR +...

    skype

    I've downloaded skype and played around with it with one of my friends... I really like the voice quality and all, I just can't ever find anyone to actually talk to... I search for people and they all seem to be offline, or at least it says so when I pull up an IM window with them and look in...

    Finally some sorta decent temps!

    I actually went out and bought a new case today @ CompUSA. It's a mid-priced midtower case, has both a side & top window, takes 4x80mm fans up front, 2x80mm in back, 1 80mm side, and 1 80mm top. Right now, I have 7 80mm fans in it (only one front slot isn't used right now). As well as doing...
