need help with wget
Help! I'm at my wit's end here.

I need to snag a complete mirror of this directory and everything beneath it (2 layers of recursion should be sufficient):

http://web.archive.org/web/20030413185309/www.gizmology.net/lovecraft/

Ideally, I'd like this all in a single directory, with all images, relative links, and "lovecraft" being the topmost directory in the tree...something suitable for burning to a CDROM and keeping handy.

Unfortunately, I'm having a great deal of difficulty making wget do it. No matter how many levels of recursion I try, no matter what I do, it only mirrors the site's robots.txt and the index file with none of the links.

Can someone please help me out?

Compaq Proliant 800
Dual 4 Gig Drives
Smartstart Server setup
128Mb Ram.

When installing and I get to partion the drives, it says that it cannot write to the partion.
Smartstart can write to the partions, and the SCSI hardware recognizes the drives.
I have tried both Red Hat Version 8.0 and Red Hat Version 9.0
==========================================================
The partion table on the device sda was unreadable. To Create new partions it must be initilized, causing the loss of ALL
DATA on this drive.

This operation will override any previous installation choices about which drives to ignore.

Would you like to inititialize this drive, erasing ALL DATA?
No Yes
==========================================================

No, the machine sends termination signals and reboots.
Yes, and the machine gets
==========================================================
No Drives Found
An error has occured - no valid devices were found on which to create new file systems. Please check your
hardware for the cuase of this problem.
OK
==========================================================
The machine has no data, I did erase the drives and run Compaq Smartstart on it several times with different configurations.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Let's say that I want to install two different versions of Linux (any two--one stable for everyday use, the other for testing and evaluation). Is it ok to use the same swap partition for both (given that obviously, I won't be using both of them at the same time)? I'm just trying to make sure that I won't run into any nasty surprises. Thanks!

Low Refresh Rate / Resolution
I am currently running Slackware 9.1 on the 2.6.1 kernel. I just installed the latest nVidia driver for my GeForce FX 5200 and am able to receive my preferred resolution of 1024x768 except it is at 60Hz refresh rate. If I increase that refresh rate to my preferred of 75Hz, I am limited to 800x600 resolution. I know my monitor is capable of more than that. Below is my XF86Config file.

Also, I have a scrollwheel on my Logitech Dual MouseMan Optical that I would like to use. How can I activate it?

Heres my XF86Config:

Thanx in Advance

UPDATE: Alright, thank you for the suggestions, I looked up the stats on my Compaq FS740 monitor, and was able to get the horiz and vert settings. However, I do have one remaining problem. In GNOME, when I drag icons, the background behind them becomes distorted.

hey all.
I made my /usr partition too small, for reasons I won't go into here.
what's the easiest way to increase the size? it's ext3, just needs to fill empty space on the drive.
thanks!

oh, and there's no floppy drive, but I could hook one up. cd's easier though.
