    Thanks for the link. I guess I'll just try burning the disk again.

    Hmmm same, I'll try redownloading. It's the "pclinuxos-p92.iso" one right?

    Yeah. Make sure you do a checksum on the image before you burn it.

    Well K3B has a checksum thing it runs before it burns the CD but I'm not sure what if that's what you're talking about. Anyways, I delete my original .iso, redownloaded it, reburned it at 4x speeds and it still fails K3B's checksum thingie.

    Maybe you should download PCLinuxOS with BitTorrent:

    Alright, bittorent sounds like a good idea. Downloaded the .torrent, saved it to my desktop, and I tried downloading it in both bittornado and bittorent client but I still get this error message:

    ERROR
    bad data from the tracker - bad bencoded data.
    I've even tried turning off my firewall during the downloading of the .iso and the bittorent download, still doesn't work.

    http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm

    Try this Freeware program to burn your .iso files

    And mind, that it´s not an executable program but once you install it, right click on your iso file and there should be a "copy image to CD"

    Easy and smart - works for me flawless. - also with the PSLinuxOS.iso

    Re: HowTo use DiskDrake for Partitioning

    LOVELY! I had somehow created an excess partition when trying to load Ubuntu 6.1 while it was still a beta release. Nothing else I tried would let me get rid of that partiton!
    I would like to expand my UBUNTU partition (I'm striving to abandon "windwoes". I have UBUNTU on my second hard drive. It and the swap partition are on the last 10% of this drive.
    Can I do this with DiskDrake?
    An off-topic query: my first hard drive seems to have permissions set to root, or something. Half the time I can write to it while running UBUNTU, half the time I can't. Any way to fix this?

    Re: HowTo use DiskDrake for Partitioning

    Hi all,
    Is there any way to get DiskDrake on a live-CD without downloading the entire operating system with it? I've tried GParted already, but it didn't work for me and someone said that DiskDrake was more reliable.

    Re: HowTo use DiskDrake for Partitioning

    Ok, when DiskDrake fails, then we are to assume that the hdd does have bad clusters? That is the error I got with GParted (which I am partial too), and with DiskDrake. I really like DiskDrake too, used it loooong time ago, when installing Mandrake to partition my hdd, great tool, has been rock solid for years.
