mtlhd I don't think you understand, I'm on a mission. I WILL get this shit working and when I do I think I'm going to invest in another linux distro. I was going to go for Slackware, but the only CD burner I have is installed on a different computer and I need it to burn the iso image. (I'd download it on the other computer but there's no space left on it)
In the mean time, I'ma figure this sound crap out even if it means staying awake for the next 48 hours. Wish me luck.
