Hope someone can help with my main issue here (and if any advice is forthcoming on the second one - woohoo!!)
In my continued efforts to at last get a linux distro up and running I need to burn an iso image to dvd. The iso is from the opensuse (linux) website. I digress - the issue is that that I can only find a couple of freeware apps that do this in XP and the ones that do just keep messing it up! - do you know of any apps that can do this with no hassle?
I recently upgraded my motherboard and as such had to do a repair install of xp in order for the hdd and it's contents to be recognised and useable. I followed the windows website advice and all seemed to have worked out fine. However, i'm finding the machine slower than the old one - in that this processor is a 2.5ghz and the old one was 550mhz, surely this shouldn't be the case? - the question here i guess is - is my machine trying to read the old drivers etc, even though the repair install (according to windows) should have solved this. Anyone any idea how to find out? - a way to solve this without having to reinstall partition all over again?
I'm struggling here guys and would really welcome any help.
