Yes. Grub can trick the bios into thinking the disks are swapped. I do this on one system because xp is on the second disk and xp has to think it is on the master disk, so grub tricks the bios and so xp into thinking the second disk is the master (hd0). so it could have been grub on mepis swapping t...

Yes. I have done this myself for other reasons. since you can choose the HD to boot off all will work fine unless the bios does some trick to swap the hd0 and hd1 around. (I hope not and dont think so). if the bios does swap the devices all the hda/b entries on linux will be around the wrong way. I ...

I think you will still get the kernel panic.
that is the underlying problem.
once we can get rid of that problem the machine will just boot normally.

I'm just trying to find what causes the kernel panic problem first. most likely some kernel driver/module.

there is a: /etc/cups/cupsd.conf there is also a command line tool/command lpadmin. also if the root account does not have a password (i dont think mint does by default) and you set cups to authenticate for admin, cups wont let you in. check this out: http://forums.macosxhints.com/archive/index.php/...

Try the command:

sudo /etc/init.d/dbus start

That will start the dbus daemon or at least try to (it could be what is causing the kernel panic).

or you could change the run level.

sudo init 3
sudo init 5

I forget what run level save mode is but the normal run level is level 5.

What would be nice is how fedora's startup screen works.
Fedora has a picture and below that what service is starting (basic) and then a view details drop down box.

CUPS uses IPP (internet printing protocol) for print jobs.

have you looked at the CUPS admin via a web browser? localhost:631 or hostname:631

I would use CUPS instead of samba.
