A minor technical note, if you don’t mind.
The error message is “Grub Hard Disk Error”, about which the Grub manual has this to say:
“The stage2 or stage1.5 is being read from a hard disk, and the attempt to determine the size and geometry of the hard disk failed.”
To resolve this problem, the manual then suggests that:
“The general way that the Stage 1.5 handles errors is to print an error number in the form Error num and then halt. Pressing <CTRL>-<ALT>-<DEL> will reboot.”
… which isn’t really a suggestion at all.
What’s really going on is that your BIOS is buggy, and it’s lying to GRUB about the geometry of your hard disk. You need to update your motherboard’s BIOS with the latest version from the manufacturer.
You can can do this by getting the latest version of the BIOS and your manufacturer’s reflashing utility from their website, copying it onto a bootable floppy, and running it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
You can download a FreeDOS boot disk image for this, if you don’t have a DOS boot floppy available.

Questa cosa mi ha fatto impazzire per giorni su un vecchio pc su cui non riuscivo ad installare nessun sistema operativo, con windows mi dava il famigerato “NTLDR mancante”.
How to convert avi to flv in Linux.I did a couple of tests and these are the results that Ive come up with.Needless to say that I am no expert,they are personal opinions,see them as a starting point.
In the examples we will convert “.avi” to “.flv”,and simply copy the sound.
A typical command, then, would be:
ffmpeg the program
-i input.avi the input file
-b 1024k the output bitrate
-s 320×240 the output resolution
-r 25 the output frames per second
-acodec copy the output audio codec
movie_1024_320_25_.flv the output file
Bel programma per ricercare i file all’ interno del tuo computer e molto veloce grazie all’ inidicizzazione dei file iniziale.
Per installarlo in ubuntu o debian aprite il terminale da
sudo apt-get install recoll
Una volta installato potete lanciarlo da applicazioni-accessori
Potete fare ricerche anche per tipo di file multimediale, messaggi,presentazioni testo ecc…

You should use a file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, e.g. /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/synaptics.conf, for configuration (but this will work just as well in /etc/X11/xorg.conf). The following example shows how to enable tapping and how to configure various other options; you probably won’t need everything in it. Comment out any old config for synaptics before replacing it with this new config.
