Mandrake 10 Install so near

Recommended Posts

Hi Et-alsMDK 10 Arrived today with Updates CD but before the INSTALL PARTY :) :) need to clear the mind on a few remaining MS$ issuesI want to remove Windows 98 and think the time is NOW :( BUT---->>> 1) Can I access my printers maintenances such as Nozzle/Head Cleaning in Linux 2) How do I attack the Windows partitionsI have C = 5.84G, D = 11.7G, E= 0.97G these are all Windows capacitiesSeems to me like C can be for a distro while D & E can be combined and then split into an 8 for a another distro and a 4G for downloads etc Now which is the best way to format these PCLos or Mepis that I have on right now or try it with Mandrake InstallTo me It is the Maintenance of the Printers that is the stumblong Block for Now :o All comments welcomedColin in comfusion as always :) :(

Hi ColinFirst: there is no printer maintenance tool in Linux ( some limmited for Epson but that is all )Second . . I would NOT throw away Win98 right now . . . I would keep it on C: . . . . change the temp internet files you have on E: to C: ( tweakUi will do that ) reinstall the programs you have on D and use C: for them ( seems enough space for it ( 5.8 G )Then you will have D: and C: free ( total 12G ) and you can resize them to 8 and 4 . . . 8 for Mandrake and 4 for storage . . . This way you can run 3 distros . . . why would you want more ? And still have a small partition with Windows to fall back to. Listen Colin: it is to early to drop Win all together !:) Bruno

BrunoThe only problem with the INET to "C" is that the Blue "E" on the desktop went missing a LONG while back and I cannot right click it to set up the Inet Cache and the swap File :) That's why I was considering a Full conversion right nowColin :)

ColinThe same as rightclicking the blue e on the desktop is in the menu bar of Internet Explorer under "Extra"-->"Internet options" . . :) ( You thought I had forgotten all about Windows did you ? :) )Or simply reinstall Windows all together on C . . . . . . :o Bruno

To adjust the virtual memory swap file 1. In Control Panel, double-click System, click the Performance tab, and then click Virtual Memory. 2. To specify a different hard disk, click the Let me specify my own virtual memory settings option. Then specify the new disk in the Hard disk box. Or type values (in kilobytes) in the Minimum or Maximum box. Then click OK

Colin,In the General tab of Internet options, you have the middle box for Temporary Internet Files. Click on the settings button, and in the window that comes up, click on move folder. That will give you your drives and subfolders that you can put your TIF in.I would suggest you click on the button to delete the files first though, befre you move the folder. B)
