My main machine at home is a dual boot machine. If I boot into mdk8.2 (or
previously 8.0) via lilo off the hard disk, when I log in & then go "startx"
it crashes big time. Like black hole. nothing. Ctrl Alt Backspace won't
rescue it. Reset button is only option. If I boot from the boot floppy I made
when installing, it works fine.
Is there some file I should copy off the floppy onto my hard disk? If so,
which one? and put it where?
Any other suggestions?
Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-7ZXE with a Duron 1000 processor. Hard disk is
40 Gb. first 20 Gb is for windows. Second 20 Gb for Linux.
I previously had a Gigabyte GA-5AA motherboard with K6-2/450 processor and 20
Gb HDD dual booting Win95 & MDK8.0 which worked fine.
