  1. [ubuntu] Re: Grub on floppy destroyed after update

    @calljohnsmith

    Thanks for your attempt to help me.

    The final cure I decided to take is to erase and find an OS that better suits my needs.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Grub on floppy destroyed after update

    I did ask for an advice, and not a howto for morons. That's what one usually gets on these fora.


    grub> find /boot/grub/stage1

    returns error 15.

    Moreover, since I've run grub-install...
  3. [ubuntu] Grub on floppy destroyed after update

    I checked several similar threads, but couldn't have found the answer to my problem.

    I've installed 8.04 updates of 09/01/2009, grub update among them. I selected (as far as I recall) to keep the...

    You've already got my thanks for your excellent post above, but being a hog I am, I'll not miss a chance to ask a pro for some clarifications.

    If I understand you well, and if that's a problem with XP, my guess is that you caught a kind of back orifice - encrypted application that made your box into a server. IP address of the site in...

    [ubuntu] Re: Data Shredder

    Exactly. No need for anything else apart from Ubuntu for erasing a file.

    If one needs to erase a HDD, there is www.dban.org, or, for low-level format erase, the tools provided by respective HDD...

    [ubuntu] Re: Anti-virus

    It was actually me misreading the true intent of your message. You are right, iptables won't protect anything unless rules are set.

    Cheers.

    [other] Re: How To trace an Email

    This is, IMHO, a completely accurate statement. It doesn't imply that the stalker actually used SMTP and doesn't exclude the possibility of IP spoofing, IP anonymizing, or the use of open relays.

    I'm no expert, by any means, but it seems it's just what's reported - there is an encrypted filesystem on your HDD.

    and paste the output here?...
