    question #1
    My computer stoped booting and i didnt touch the bios
    specs:
    kt-400 firedragon ultra black motherboard by soyo
    amd xp 2000+
    512 corsair ram
    antec 300 watt power supply
    phenox bios made in 1999 not sure what ver ask if u need it

    cd-rw 20x/12x/48x
    zip-100
    1.44 floppy
    30 gig maxtor hdd
    12 gig maxtor hdd
    6 gig quantom fireball hdd
    64 meg nvidia geforce 4mx video card
    soundblaster audigy gamer

    i was low level formatting all my hdds and swaping an os from one hdd to another one night
    i used norton ghost and powermax 4.6.1 i think it was
    i switched the os from the 30 gig to the reciently lowleveled, fdisked, and formatted 12 gig hdd and that went fine then i restarted after removing the 12 and 6 gig hdds and i was going to do the same to the 30 after i lowleveled that to, i rebooted my computer with the boot disk in the drive and it froze on the boot splash screen, it was reading the floppy and when i pulled the disk out it still was, i couldnt even get to thebios setup screen. and i noticed that when i pluged it in it would boot up instantly and it would never do this so i flashed my bios and set it back to orginal settings and still nothing, lately my processor has been overheating because my cooling fan wasnt running right or something would that hav cause this or is my bios over the hill?








    Question #2

    I hav a D-link airplus dwl-650+ wireless card and rh9 doesnt hav the drivers fo my card and the ones that it has similar wont work
    i hav the windows drivers for them but i dont no if i can get them to work on linux (mostlikely not) so if someone could dive me a link to ware i could get some that would be great, ifnot i will go out and buy a new a,b,g wifi card (anything for linux jimmy rigging and duct tape wil not surfice if u no what i mean)

    One last question
    is there an emulator or a program that will make some if not all windows programs work on linux hopefuly for free if not il buy one i remember the screen savers on tech tv hav something about that on there site but i couldnt find what they were talking about

    Thanx all i know this is a long one and remember
    RedHat is Royality

    answer #1

    If your processor had been overheating there might be some chance that you might of ruined it. Do you hear any beeps when you turn on the computer? If you have a spare processor lying around you might try switching it out.

    One other thing. You might try putting the floppy in another computer and running a AV on it. If the computer froze after it read the floppy there might of been a virus on there.

    Answer #2

    Do the DWL-520, DWL-650, and DWL-500 have support for Linux?

    The Linux drivers are free to download from the following web site http://www.linux-wlan.com/.

    For detailed instructions on how to install these cards in a Linux environment click on the link below.

    Linux installation FAQ.


    Check here for Prism2 drivers from Intersil.

    Linux driver for DWL-520+ and 650+

    We do not have Linux support for the following wireless adapters:


    DWL-650H
    DWL-650K1
    DWL-650L1
    DWL-G520 / G650
    DWL-520 Rev.C1
    DWL-AB520 / AB650
    DWL-AG520 / AG650

    I think it was VMWare that they were talking about and I would also check out Win4Lin

    Hexadecimal there is linux support for your wireless card. I quoted the website above there.

    Just follow the link where it says Linux driver for DWL for 520+ and 650+
