    Doing the recommended procedure I get....
    "Reading package lists...Done.
    Building dependency tree...Done.
    Package kicker is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. E: Package kicker has no installation candidate."

    Solution anyone? jb@bang.vispa.com

    Hi, well I have looked at it but feel too daunted. It's just not clear enough for a novice like me.

Wont display the desk top


Try rebooting, tap F8 to get into the multi-boot options. Scroll down and choose "Last Known Good Configuration" windows should boot up normally. If you have made any hardware changes or if windows perfromed a corrupt update, that will require some additional help.

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:-

Not remember password.


If your not running Windows, the first thing I would do is write to Asus and ask them if they left an administrator account on this machine. Most of the time if your using linux and you forgot your password. then you just have to reinstall Linux. Most Linuxs' have a root account that you could log into to do maintanance but if they disabled this account then your going to have to reformat everything. Linux is very secure but sometimes that works against you if you don't take passwords seriously.

Usb/sd


Try opening a terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and type sudo bash.
This should give you access to everything.
If this does not work then I am not too familiar with linux either so I probably cannot help.
