Sorry for the cross post
All of a sudden my root password doesn't work. Looks like I've been
hacked (though the last time I ran YOU was three weeks ago) it's a
Firewall/Web system with ports 80,22,postgres open. Anyways I need to
know the command to boot lilo to super user mode.

Does anyone know where you can find a copy of Corel's Wordperfect Office
2000 for Linux? I've been using WP since the dos days. If I can get WP
on my Linux box, I can discard my Microsoft 98 partition. If that's a no
go, will WP Windows version work on Crossover Office? StarOffice just
doesn't have the features I'm looking for. Thanks, Tom

I,ve tried to copy first cd from suse 8.0 and make it bootable!
I've used something like this
mkisofs -c suse/images/boot.catalog -b disks/bootdisk -f -V SU8000.001 -R
-o cd.iso /media/cdrecord
and then i've used cdrecord !
i have tried even with
mkisofs -c suse/images/boot.catalog -b disks/bootdisk -eltorito-alt-boot -b
disks/i386 -eltorito-alt-boot -b disks/modules1 -eltorito-alt-boot -b
disks/modules2 -eltorito-alt-boot -b modules3 -eltorito-alt-boot -b
disks/rescue-f -V SU8000.001 -R -o cd.iso /media/cdrecord
After this when i try to boot with this cd i do not have all options that i
have whit the original one (Installation, nstallation-safe settings,
Installation Apic enabled, Manual Installation, Rescue System, Memory Test,
Boot Installed OS )! I only have installation, installation-safe settings.
manual installation, rescue system and Boot installed OS.
Can anyone help me? What am i doing wrong?
or... how can i make an identical copy of a cd?
many, many .. thanx
I would be thankful for answers to some questions: about wireless cards
1) Re: Wireless Ethernet Cards for Desktops.
How does one get Linux to recognize an ethernet card (e.g. a wireless card)
that is not on the list of supported cards shown by YAST2?
2) Re: Installing a PCMCIA card onto a Desktop.
I understand that one can install a wireless PCMCIA ethernet card in a
desktop with the appropriate PCI card. Is there any problem with Linux's
recognizing the card under these circumstances?
Under Linux 8.0, is there any problem with recognition and use of a wireless
PCMCIA? I read the relevant HowTo, but that installed under Debian and I
think (guess) an older kernel.
Does a technology exist that can connect two locations that are some 2-300
meters apart without using teleserverices?
The two locations are not visible from each other, so laser or similar is
not an option.
The bandwidth demand is very small, so the solutions should be very
Anything like that?
SuSE 7.3 2.4.16-4GB kernel
I have a Mitsumi CR-480ATE CD-RW drive. I've followed the directions
in the CD-Writing HOWTO, but it does not work.
My /etc/modules.conf file has these lines:
alias char-major-21 sg
# cd writer
options ide-cd ignore=hdc
alias scd0 sr_mod
pre-install sg modprobe ide-scsi
pre-install sr_mod modprobe ide-scsi
pre-install ide-scsi modprobe ide-cd
In my lilo.conf file I have this:
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda3
label = linux
append = "hdc=ide-scsi"
I get these complaints in my logfile:
May 24 16:26:29 bi165 modprobe: modprobe: pre-install sg failed
May 24 16:26:29 bi165 modprobe: modprobe: insmod char-major-21 failed

I haven't a clue what's wrong, and I'd be grateful for some
