Re: Trying to install LMDE, run into a "hang".

If you just want to install LMDE, just burn the DVD image to a DVD, or use UNetbootin (runs on Windows or OS X also) to put it on a USB drive. If you don't know what a kernel is, I have not a clue how you got to use a multiboot USB drive. Why so complicated?

Re: Have Dell Inspiron 530 want to upgrade graphics card Hel

Well, for an objective view: 1. The GeForce 8400 GS chip has a performance score of 160 at the mid-range cards list at http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/mid_range_gpus.html . 2. The Intel GMA 3150 Express, which is near half as slow as your Intel GMA 3100, has a score of 69 at the low-end cards list...

Re: How do I dual boot XP when Mint is installed first?

Windows XP will erase your entire harddisk, unless you make a new NTFS partition upfront. To be able to do that, you can not be logged in to your system. So, boot from your Linux Mint Live CD/DVD/USB stick. Then run GParted, click which partition you want to make smaller, right-click on it and make ...

Re: init not found

Check in the BIOS if your harddisk is still detected. Often the BIOS also has an option to do a self-test on the harddisk or to access the SMART data from the harddisk (SMART is built into most harddisk, where they monitor their own health and report if they are breaking down).
