Screen shot of my last attempt at installing RH Linux 7.1

Screen shot of my last attempt at installing RH Linux 7.1

Regarding the last post I did on the Asus A7V-133 motherboard with a Duron
800 processor and 128 MB of RAM.

I disabled the onboard audio also and it looked like it installed fine, but
after rebooting, it gave me the following message regarding a Kernel Panic.

Can anyone with experience please interpret the screen shot for me? I
suspect it is the HDD. I noticed a physical part of it was broken - a piece
of the plastic housing that receives the ribbon cable, and perhaps some of
the soldered connections may not be done to quality.

1. Swapping graphics and screen captures between RH Linux 7.1 and Windows

I have the following hardware and software:

- Armada 1700 laptop with NT 4.0 and Linux Redhat 7.1 (I boot Linux with a
- PC running ME

My client's app runs on Linux; I want to document it on my PC using Windows
programs (Word, Paintshop Pro, etc) either on the laptop or more probably on
my Windows ME PC. Basically I want to make screen captures in Linux and get
them into my Windows-based documents.

1) How do I make screen captures in Linux and what file format are they
saved in?
2) Do I use a regular floppy (or zip disk) to transfer the files to a
WIndows environment?
3) Does Redhat 7.1 support internal zip drives?
4) My Linux desktop is pretty bare; where do I enter a shutdown command? All
I could figure out was to do a CTRL-ALT-DEL and exit that way.

Sorry some of these are so basic; I've looked at Linux resources first. I
