    You want to "go into" the bios and see what you can set.

    Someone here is vague on what a bios does and what an operating system does.

  16. Re: re IRC - no client in 10.04 - no posts about it - suggestion, put one in.

    This is not true. If you install 10.04 and start Empathy you will find that IRC is absent from its list of protocols.

    As I said, oops!

    Yes, this post is to insist that there be an IRC client on the liveCD.

    That's all.
