Yes, you will need to be root. Incidentally, you should be root when executing the setup script, as there are some things it needs to do with root permission.
And I wasn't joking, the only reference I could find to mintex was for brakes. Knowing your literary history, I thought it best to make sure Rolling Eyes
You know, your vagueness in referring to things you have done doesn't help at all Shocked

i was root by using su in the console then putting my password in i didn't know how to delete/remove files in command line so i tried with filemanager and it wouldn't let me change them Rolling Eyes
towy 71 i have followed those instructions to the letter and it doesn't work Rolling Eyes
i have read that certain combos of modems and distro and general "innards" of computers don't/won't work together Confused
i will have another go later and leave some pathetic posts later Embarassed

So, perhaps this isn't the best time to ask you what you think of Wigan's new coach - I was told to ask, and despite receiving a long lecture on the in and outs of the subject all I really rememebr is that he used to be a coach for St. Helen's.

i think if he is the most obnoxious man on earth and if last week you would have said he is going to be our new coach i would have burned my season ticket Mad
but after our performance on friday i welcome the change Very Happy

But what about the poor old chap they kicked out? Hadn't he been a loyal servant of the club throughout his career?

Have you noticed you've got a pm?

I DUMPED MY SPEEDTOUCH 330 MODEM!

I figured if Speedtouch (Thomson Electronics) we're prepared to provide me with the proper drivers I wouldn't use their equipement.

Bought myself a gorgeous slimline 4 port ADSL Router off ebay for 25.

Networks are the blood of Linux. Plugged my router into Network port. Within 10 minutes...no exaggeration (and 2 mins of that was putting the kettle on)

My machine sprang to life.

I tried to get my Speedtouch 330 to work with Mandrake 10 and Suse 9.0. Followed all the Internet guides to the letter. I know there will be some people reading this who have managed to get their 330 to work.

My answer is that I can (and have since) networked a another PC.

Put your Speedtouch 330 in a field and burn it.

I dropped mine in the canal and let the fishes play with it.

It's what it deserved!!!!!
