A couple-o-days ago i wondered how I could partition my existing linux
partition (the only one on the hard disk) without erasing any data so that I
could put in windows.
So some one suggested I use gnu's "parted" program. So I downloaded it and
tried to compile it. So each time i ./configure and make it it crashes with
the following error:
program as failed.
I assume its sayin that the assembler is buggy. Any Ideas?
Now as to why I want to install an inferior product like windows in the
first place, well here it is:
My Linux PC has 32 mb of ram with the kernel 2.4 in it.
I have 2 network cards. One of the cards is used for my home LAN and the
other one is connected to my cable ISP. As u would have guessed I am using
this linux box as a gateway to other PCs in my LAN. So any hooo I got all
the dhcp and all working and the NIC connected to the cable (eth1) gives me
speeds of 5 k a second. I have put the exact same card (literally) onto a
slower windows 98 machine with 16 mb of ram and i get speeds of upto 250 k a
second fo rthe same file. So I wanted to see if windows on the linux
machine could help me out here.
When i did an ifconfig, there were an incredibly high number of frame errors
in reception of packets:

So can some body help me out here.. I am stuck with this for a month without
