MCE Help

I edited the mceinstaller script (v1.1) and changed my starting sector to what used to be the starting sector of my G partition, fired up MCE, ran "Stardust" and let it do its thing. B/C I changed the starting sector I ignored the format warning and let the script run its source. When I got to the g...

Editing the offset will not save your f drive from being formatted (which I just found out).

Strange thing is - my files are still there (I can tell by the free space) but I can't "see" them

Anyone know why?

Quick Questions concerning the iso's

1) What do you use to create the iso's? I opened them up with isobuster and I saw three filesystems in the file.

2) Are the iso's normally bootable? b/c I had to take them apart and reassemble mine as an xiso to boot.

Okay. I don't have a native install and was afraid it would flash my bios and screw up my chip - does a native install flash your bios or does it ask you if you would like to flash to cromwell?

I unmasked then emerged the latest xbox-sources and noticed this warning (not verbatim) - The FatX driver is currently horribly broken. Writing to a Fatx partition will corrupt it. So I guess the 2.6 kernels are out of the question. However - would magic be compatible with 2.6 kernels (if they worke...

Upgrading the kernel

Is it possible to upgrade the linux kernel without breaking gentoox? I'd really like to use nitro's patched sources (plus the latest 2.6+ kernel would better support external tv capture cards)

I've gotten it to work on an old 1ghz laptop that has either usb1 or 1.1. I wasn't able to get smooth video in though. That may have been due to any number of reasons though
