well, i have been having some issues. mainly.. this http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=38317 i need to get that thing working in two days time, at the most, because it is essential for my work. i could do without it, but i do so much paperwork that i have to take aspirin before i start working if i use a pen. my idea was that people in this section of the forums may not check the others very often, yet you guys would probably be the most experienced w/ getting an os to work. if i can get windows to work, i will still be dual-booting linux, but i cant start if...well, i cant start.
