    Tri booting as in Windows, OSX, and Linux?

    You need a FAT partition for data as OSX and Linux dont support NTFS out of the gate.

    Wont work if you have large files though. I beleive the largest file size supported there is around 4gb

    Vista Business, XP Professional, and LInuxICE2 as my default OS( but using the Vista bootloader as my default bootloader)!


    Ubuntu 9.04 detected all of my other partitions as well as my other drives....something is missing from LinuxICE2 to permit access to my other drives(at least as "user" it is) that Ubuntu 9.04 has that I need. Just don't know what yet!!!!!

    search in synaptic for ntfs-3g. That should allow you to mount ntfs drives (which you should see in thunar or nautilus)...

    check in APPS, Applications, pulseAudio Volume Contr, for the speaker icon at the top right. It is probably boxed (muted). Click on it to unbox (unmute). You should also now be able to use the volume slide bars.

    i've never tested cd playback. I have a cd player in my car but I never *ever* use it. If it doesn't work, i may just take it out completely if the fix isn't trivial. I think most people just rip the disc and add it to their library anyway right?

    I would agree on the cd ripping, At first glance I cant imagine it not working, unless what you guys have been doing under the hood needs integration to make NGhost aware of the cd player function. I will give it a go.

    I Just read what I wrote and I am not trying to point out that I think the NGhost/LinuxICE team has done anything wrong. It has just been my experience if no one required it and you weren't lucky enough for it to be a fallout of design requirements, then it probably won't work.

    KEV gave some tips on a more permanent fix on a recent related thread.
