I've just installed Mint Xfce on my dad's comp without a hitch, except that when I try to get into the Windows 98 (yes, it's old) install, it goes into the C prompt and gives me a message saying HIMEM.SYS is missing, and I should check that it is in my windows directory. I can't access Windows though, and I want to check that all the important stuff is still there, even though I installed mint on the second harddrive, and didn't touch the first. Any ideas?
Also, how do I access the Windows partitions in Mint Xfce? In GNOME it's simple enough, but I've not seen anywhere I can does this in Xfce yet.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
