Im looking for a linux recovery disc for my acer aspire one zg5 netbook


I don't think you will find a recovery CD but Linux is free to download is suggest using pen drive linux (link bellow) to get the OS you want and the tools you need to make your boot media

How do i reset the password when i dont know the original pw?


A password is required to install anything on Linux, in order to prevent any malware or unauthorized users from doing harm. In order to install the program you wish, you will need to enter your password, which is the password you used to log in to Linux. I am assuming your account has sufficient privileges. If you set up an administrator, root, or su (superuser) password when you first booted up Linux, enter that password.

The os is to frustrating linux is not for me ..xp is what I want .need to get linux out then install xp.


The particular model of Asus is apparently pre-loaded with Xandros Linux operating system.

It appears that you are not familiar with Linux and hence the apprehension and feeling that a shift to XP would be easier.

Why not give Linux a try ? There are a good many websites out there which go through the basics of using a Linux PC. Try them out, by spending some time in learning - you will get far more satisfaction and become more productive in using your laptop.

Some websites which might be of assistance to you are listed below:-

Need a virus program on my netbook....help me find one and install it

Note to Linux users. You don't need that **** AV unless you are running an email server that serves windows machines.
That is because of how linux was designed.

Msn?


Well , right you are , pidgin does not support webchat.

You can definately run executables in linux, its just a little different from the way windows does it.

From what I can find about the interface for your OS, there should be an application launcher that you can use to browse to the program you downloaded. Even then it may not be compatible with the kernel you are running.

If you cant get to it that way you will have to open a terminal.

Fn-F2 brings up a command line where you can launch the terminal.

Depending on how it is setup, it should take you to a prompt in you /home directory.

You can then execute the file you downloaded by typing in ./filename

If that program you tried doesnt work , here is another that may.

Acer aspire one trouble downloading


Are you downloading software for linux. I know that there is a limewire for linux and an msn for linux. When you save your files also, you need to choose whrere you want them to go. It's a little confusing at first because linux's filesystem is a little different than windows. If you want to save files then you need to find /home/"your linux username"/desktop. "Your linux username" is the username you use to sign in with when you first log into linux.

Downloading skype onto my acer aspire one netbook


For aspire one you need to download the Fedora 7 package from the Skype Website.

Afterwards, just do what your aspire asks you to do. When everything is installed, just press alt+F2, type in "skype", en press "Run". Skype will start up. That's it
