Sorry Bonesaw, I gave up on 2000 a couple of years ago, it could not even update without massive problems, ( loss of control panel, failure to boot ETC.

I'm using mint 9 before that Fedora 7-10, then Mint 7-9, Can recommend Mint 9, Modern Fedora...not so much...

Have you tried Black Vipers site Bone? He usually gives very nice guilds to tweeking MS's OS's. I found this about win2k SP4. Maybe that will help.

With permission I put xp on it and that help a million times over. The computer was just for internet and photos. After reading a bunch of people with the same code 19 problem with no real fix I went for xp.

thats cool. I think you should write an article about your experience moving from Windows 2000 to Linux. I curious about your success and issues with that kind of experience.

Here's one just for you.

For years I struggled with each new Fedora or Ubuntu trying to replace MS in my life with software that shares my moral outlook on life.

I had a ton of help from knowledgeable people, each time there was a major problem, something I needed to do but couldn't get to work, the Printer, or my Video card, or sound...

It just wasn't filling the bill for me.... I'm well aware the Linux literate could and did do any damn thing they like in Linux...or nearly....":O}

I was looking for a Desktop, pure and simple.... I had no real special needs beyond what someone's mildly curious grandmother might have.

But for a number of reasons Linux just wasn't delivering as "I" needed her to do.

Then diso Spent about half a day setting me up in Fedora.... I think It was Fedora 9 ..... And we installed my Nvidia drivers, Then we installed Quake 4, Then I started rock and rolling in Linux... I had everything I needed from a Printer to 5.1 sound...almost painlessly.

For a year or two Fedora was always getting better...Occasionally she had trouble after an update, but it was almost always fixed in a day or two.... then they started to let things come between us, like drivers for my Video card....

Fortunately about a year before that happen Cliff introduced me to MINT 7 (!!!)

You install it, you look around, you find all your Linux/ Unbantu/ Fedora favorites and find they all work! They all work all the time.

You stop paying for software other than games...":O

BTW Steam is coming to Linux and PS3 soon I'm told... Things just keep getting better for the Linux user...":O}

thanks Dan. Sounds like the old Fedora headaches are over.
I have used Mint a bit and really liked the ease-of-use they included.
I have not been able to use it on a daily basis, but its moving in the right direction for a "windows" user that wants to migrate from windows to linux. Keep us posted on your successes. I will keep introducing linux to my students and clients.
