• How can I install Linux Mandrake 7.0 on an external USB hard drive?

    I just got a WDElements 500GB external hard drive. I've already partitioned it the way I want it with a 100GB partition intended for Linux in the front, followed by a 100GB "overflow" partition and a ~300GB Windows partition. Windows recognizes all of them as it should. (They're all NTFS for now.) When I try to install Linux,... show more
    I just got a WDElements 500GB external hard drive. I've already partitioned it the way I want it with a 100GB partition intended for Linux in the front, followed by a 100GB "overflow" partition and a ~300GB Windows partition. Windows recognizes all of them as it should. (They're all NTFS for now.) When I try to install Linux, it won't recognize my USB HD. It recognized my internal IDE HD and its partitions accurately, although it labeled the two partitions as HDA1 and HDA3. (I don't know what happened to HDA2.) Anyway, how can I get Linux Mandrake 7.0 to recognize the external hard drive?

  • What is the chain order of laws that overrule other laws?

    There are criminal laws (multi-tier, usually), civil laws, traffic laws, probation/parole conditions and court-ordered stipulations that can be enacted on a federal, state, county, city, and neighborhood/subdivision level. (I know there aren't too many federal laws regarding parole, but let's assume there are.) If there is a situation in... show more
    There are criminal laws (multi-tier, usually), civil laws, traffic laws, probation/parole conditions and court-ordered stipulations that can be enacted on a federal, state, county, city, and neighborhood/subdivision level. (I know there aren't too many federal laws regarding parole, but let's assume there are.) If there is a situation in which a person must be obligated to violate a law, what law should he/she violate? Example: A traffic light as which I'd stopped turned green. I entered the intersection anticipating making a left turn before the light turns red. I didn't expect so much oncoming traffic and I didn't notice a pedestrian crossing the street I was turning onto until I'd entered the intersection. When the light turned yellow, should I have violated the city traffic law (the city has a strict "Red means Stop" campaign; this intersection was photo-enforced), the state traffic law (going straight from the left-turn lane) or the state criminal law (hitting the ped)? TIA

  • Anyone got a good drink recipe including Jack Daniels?

    I got a bottle of JD and tried it straight. Thank God I got the smallest bottle! I like sweet-tasting drinks, but I don't want the hangover from too much sugar. Does anyone have any good recipes to mask the JD flavor until I run out? JD seems too spicy for me, but medium taco sauce is too hot for me. TIA. While I'm at it, how much... show more

While I'm at it, how much JD would I need to drink at one time to blow a .10? How much to feel drunk? 27 y/o, 6'1", 220# male, first timer. TIA again!

  • How can I make a promissory note so it'd be worth more when it's resold?

    I'm trying to buy a business. Would it be better to call that a business promissory note or a real estate promissory note? What would the ideal balloon payment be, if any? How long should the term be? What is the "ideal" interest rate? The business I'd like to purchase would cost about $1,000,000 and the seller may want a... show more

How long should the term be? What is the "ideal" interest rate? The business I'd like to purchase would cost about $1,000,000 and the seller may want a lump sum quickly, so I want to help him get the most for the note. Thank you!

  • Why can't I use Firefox or IE when Opera and Netscape work fine?

    I can download e-mail and traceroute as normal. The only problem is that I can't access the web from Firefox or IE. I am on a DSL line and I can't even access the DSL modem's settings in IE 7.0.6001.18000 or the just-updated Firefox 2.0.0.13.

I was able to access those settings in Opera 9.24, but I didn't seen anything about a proxy server, and Netscape 8 is hanging. I deleted a dial-up account I don't use shortly before this happened, which is probably what caused this. Please help! I'm on Vista home basic. Thanks in advance.

  • Could a death threat result in financial compensation in the state of Washington?

    I know that a death threat is a class C felony in the state of Washington, but could it potentially result in monetary compensation, such as restitution, victim compensation, etc.? I have already received a death threat and would like to use it for financial gain. (There's a long story behind that.) Thanks in advance!
