ok... i've been trying to figure this out all night, looked all over the net, tried a few things, i tried lsmod to see which modules were loaded and ide-scsi was not one of them but neither was ide-cd which confuses me because normal cd reading still worked but anyways, i did insmod ide-scsi and the...

well,
i opened /etc/samba/smb.conf but didn't find any [printers] section...does that mean something? i can see the printer in xffm and it says its a printer (canoni860) with a little printer icon so the network can see it, just not access it?

well, with mozilla i'm pretty sure when you download a torrent file it would ask you if you want to open it with a specific program and then you would find the bittorrentgui file and it would ask if you always want to use this program and you say yes, then whenever you download a torrent file it aut...

hey, you have to tell mozilla to link *.torrent files to bittorrentgui.sh or whatever the name is, i don't know if it's as easy with mozilla firebird though, check usr/bin for it i forget exactly where it is i'm just reinstalling it now, i had it working great on my old setup though :)

the xbox's fatx filesystem has a 42 character limitation as well as many special characters such as commas and *'s, so it will not let you write a file to it with a larger filename, this includes the extension of the file from what i've seen, hope that helps :)
