  1. Too bad he ignored you LOL
  2. This guy appears to have signed up just to answer your question, SoulFly. Not to be the righteous and moral police, but when you have an attitude towards something/someone, people will not help you again. Be appreciative, be patient. You are having a tough time, we get it, but for every one case like this, there could be 5,000 without issue. When dealing with newer or older technologies or closed source code, sometimes things aren't smooth, but that does not mean everyone has issues.
  3. I use unetbootin to make my usb drives bootable with Linux. I took a video of a relatively unknown linux distro booting up, it looks like this:
  4. bb is correct about the aspect ratio, I apologize for overlooking that detail.
  5. MOV was used, you told us so. Just select it when rendering/exporting...You can convert to others like MPEG but I would keep the original if possible.
  6. If it is possible in Windows Movie Maker, then this is how it is done: ~Open up WMM and click 'File' and then 'Import' the file you wish to resize. ~Now File > Save and choose custom setting ~Choose a lower resolution (1024 x 768 maybe?) ~Now, File > Export or Render...choose a compression rate (80 is good) and a codec. If you can, maintain original codec. Remember, the more you compress and the lower the resolution, the lower the quality! Your computer will not be able to play 1080p files, i had an Athlon X2 64 with 4 GB RAM and it just would freeze randomly throughout the video, and this is in both Windows and Linux. Virtualdub should be able to do what you are looking for as well, and there are plenty of tutorials on the web for it. If Nero came with your computer (trial or Lite version), or is an older version, it may not have the ability to do what you are looking for.

    No need for anti virus. Don't waste your system's resources.

    If a device was recognized, wouldn't it show up with the lsusb command?

    Would be willing to make the short drive over Kurt. I've got the necessary Windows and Linux discs to get things goings for you. Good luck either way.

    Can't say that I've seen a router with a usb port on it?

    LOL not to my knowledge. It's just a little saying the linux folks would understand. Are you from New Jersey? I sent you a PM

    The network install is the bare bones one which is very small and fits on a CD. It requires you to download packages from the internet to complete the installation. If possible, use the regular DVD first and see if it includes software to properly recogniz your connectivity devices. Windows can only be wasted if you got to the partition editor. That is the only way.

    Bruce or Terry can help you best but... 1. eth0 would be your ethernet (wired) connection, not the USB gadget. You should have no issues if you plug in a cat5 cable before installation. Sometimes wireless adapters are not recognized and thus cannot be used during installation. It should not be necessary to be connected to the Internet for install unless you are using the network installation (bare minimum) disc. However, a quick google shows that you may have an issue with the USB wireless adapter. There are ways around this, such as using ndiswrapper to use a windows driver on linux, but you would need to know the exact model of the adapter. lsusb or lspci should reveal this information from the terminal. 2. ESSID is going to be the name of your wireless network and WPA key is a type of security for said network. Generally a user sets this up on their own, but I have seen many FiOS routers come with this information printed on the side of the modem/router box. You won't even be able to input this information, however, if the wireless adapter is not being recognized (there is no driver included in the kernel). Not sure about the other stuff, looks to be information about repositories/mirrors for updates or something. 3. The Gateway is your router, which is commonly 192.168.1.1 though it may differ. Your computer's local IP address would be some remnant of this (192.168.1.2 for example). This number does not necessarily apply to your SuSE installation because if you do not have a static IP address, the address may change depending on which devices are connected, etc. Which version of SuSE are you trying to install? 32 bit or 64 bit? DVD, CD, or network installation disc? How did you screw windows up...incorrect partitioning?
  17. Full install is always faster and guaranteed to fix the issues. I can get 7 installed and configured in about an hour for my customers...2 hours if they get data backed up.

    PO'd at Newegg

    My first ever purchase from there was a refurb GPS a few years ago. I got it, turned it on, and there was a dead pixel on the screen. They wanted me to pay for return shipping but I :filtered:ed and they paid for it. My second purchase was a stick of RAM for a customer. The stick was faulty. After restocking fee and shipping label, I would've only received about 25% of the cash back for the memory. Not totally impressed with them. Obviously a small sample to pull from but still.
  19. It's working now Bruce. I either fixed it, or it fixed itself somehow...but I had too much to drink and can't remember how it came to be...
  20. This is what happened Bruce. I did the updates and it prompted me to reboot ASAP. I rebooted, and it took me into a text-only mode. So I installed the nvidia driver just like before and it was successful. I rebooted, but the same exact thing happens....just goes straight to text. The commands 'startx' and 'kdm' do nothing, though the former spits out an error with regards to not being able to move an old config file or something like that.
  21. I have the latest nvidia driver installed.
  22. Thanks Bruce. I did the updates and then installed the driver, but when I reboot it goes straight to a CLI. I can't get KDE to start. Any idea?
  23. That one is connected with a wire to your router, and the computers can write to the disk wirelessly over the network. This would have the same effect, but it costs more and is not very practical for everyday home use. At any rate, it's still easier to just put an extra HDD in a tower if you have one. Takes all of five minutes. There's lots of options available to you.
  24. HDD in the comptuers don't really matter, but rather, how much storage you're actually using on those computers..
