Re: VirtualBox Error

Hi, Me again, don't worry, VirtualBox works, (well 99% anyway), one thing though, when I click on the menu and click Full Screen mode it opens the VirtualBox in Full Screen but the Windows section just stays as a small box like in normal mode, is there a way to change this? It's not a massive proble...

Re: Best application for watching DVD's

Personally I'd say VLC, I believe it can play near on any type of movie file type.

Re: VirtualBox Error

I've reinstalled a few times now and even re-downloaded the .iso but it never seems to work. There must be a way to just re-install all these missing files?

Re: Hotmail and Firefox

Hi,

It worked perfectly from your tutorial but the only problem I've got is that it takes all the e-mails from my online MSN.com login so that I can't view them online, I also couldn't see any of my folders, is this correct or have I not completed something?

Re: Partition problem

Hi, I've looked at that but I get an error message that says: "No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu." I'm sure not where to add the root file system though?

For the bluetooth, open synaptic and search for "gnome-user-share. It's mostly for receiving files - which is what you want. For Flash I have "flashplugin-nonfree" installed, also from synaptic. I don't know what repositories you hane enabled, on my system they're all enabled. And for Wine, it soun...
