I think the French revolution was a good thing, but it's not fully
done yet. We still may need to arm our farmers with hay-forks and
drive all these pararits out of the country, because they ask for
more than 10% tax (~50% yet).
I better stop here, ... you made me talk politics Rene ;)
and keep my personal opinion on the matter for myself.
Let's talk about how to implement Linux into our tools.
Have you got brief descriptions of the API-functions ?

I think everything usefull is at: < http://www.gtk.org/ >
in the Documentation Menu. But, personally, at am not at
that point, yet... Just exploring...

It is indeed possible to access the physical drives and their various
partitions at that level, but this type of access is below the file
system level, and is normally only used by disk utilities which play
with the partition table.
To see how the partitions fit into the directory tree, use the df

I have to go back to installing Xubuntu. I checked all the disks
for Fedora 6 and they all verified (whatever it does to verify).
But the install keeps bombing out while trying to install some
"yum" and it keeps bombing out with the same error message. When
Xubuntu failed to install, I changed the way the partitions were
configured and Xubuntu installed when I set the SWAP area to 4GB.
The default SWAP area gets set to 256MB by both Fedora and the
others. I originally thought perhaps there's a hard disk problem,
and I've reformated the hard disk drives a number of times. I've
turned on the SMART stuff in the BIOS to see if that helps. It's
and old computer.
I was hoping someone here knew what the SWAP area is when Linux
formats a drive. Xubuntu seemed to format 3 drives, while Fedora
possibly treats all three drives as one (???). I'm a little
puzzled by what's actually going on there. Is anyone here able
to explain the SWAP area that gets set up when a drive gets

The swap partition is essentially the same as in Windows, although
formatted differently. It is the space on disk where the system saves
memory pages when there is not enough RAM. By default, it is set to
twice the amount of RAM, but 256MB is unlikely to be enough to install
