this should help

if the md5 you got from the cd it should match the one you got now :popcorn:

Try remastersys. It's available through synaptic package manager.

or run the following in a terminal


sudo apt-get install remastersys

remastersys is a very good idea

it makes an iso of your system then you can install it on any pc and it will install with those settings etc...

sounded like a good idea so I just did

sudo apt-get install remastersys




and it said it wasn't in the repositories. Is it maybe just in an old one?

thanks to everyone for all your help but everything i have read has been way past my limited skill level...

i wanted a copy of my 9.04 the way it is now so i could reinstall it in the future without just installing the live disc and work at getting it the way i have it now which ill likely never be able to duplicate without messing everything up...

anyway i do appreciate the attempts to help me... ill just have to learn more about pc's before any of this makes sense...
