    looks like i don't need to run the second line anymore, the first time after installing fidefrag was enough. just the last 2 back to back every time i want to run it.

    these instructions are not very precise.

    the first line installs fidefrag.

    I think I need to run the second line every time I turn on my PC, otherwise it tells me that "fidefrag.py" doesn't exist. But every time I run the second line I get the message:

    You have not informed bzr of your Launchpad ID, and you must do this to
    write to Launchpad or access private data. See "bzr help launchpad-login".


    what does this mean?

    Well, it sounds like you're not waiting for bzr to install...patience my friend is a virtue. You can ignore the Launchpad prompt...once bzr installs you should be fine. Make sure you change into the directory (3rd line) before running fidefrag (4th line).

    Dude, either you've had waaaay toooo much java or you're rambling a bit. Viruses aren't that common for Linux but they do exist. Clam Antivirus is posted on this forum page for your convenience. The rest I'm leaving up to you, there are several chat clients available for Linux that interface with Yahoo, MSN, AOL, ICQ, etc... poke around some and you'll find one you like I'm sure.

    Cheers!

    Oh BTW folks, Maverick Meerkat works great using the latest VMware player!!! The new player has a lot of the install functionality that only the workstation version used to have...a great way to test out Ubuntu. Make sure you have lots of RAM and a fast processor. I allocated 2Gb of memory using a 2.53 Ghz i5 Intel processor and it works like a champ!
