    I think there are several issues at work here.

    Are knowledge and experience the same thing?

    Re: HELP! Saitek Pro Gamer Command pad

    Try this:

    cat /dev/input/js0

    Now, while that is running, press different buttons and watch the terminal. Which buttons cause something to happen and which do not?

    Probably the best approach now is to use a DOS boot floppy and uninstall WUBI by deleting these directories/files:

    Re: Can Not Boot!

    Yes, you can use a different LiveCD, like Knoppix. You can download it and burn it to disk.
