splitting windows across desktops
I used fvwm as my windows manager for years. I tried gnome (ala fedora) once a few years back, but it was too slow. I'm giving it another try and the hardware seems to have caught up. One thing that I really miss about fvwm is being able to split a window across two desktops, or to be able to move from one desktop to the other just using the cursor.

In otherwords, in fvwm, if you have four "desktops", it is like they are all parts of one virtual desktop, four times as big.

Is there a way to do this in Gnome?

apple-ipod/creative-zen/others...
i have a creative nomad II that has recently stopped reading it's memory card (it's definitely an internal problem)...

so, i'm in the market for a new mp3 player. this time, i'd like it to work easily with linux so i don't have to use windows to put songs on it/rip music/etc....

i've been looking at the apple ipod and the creative zen-xtra, primarily, and i just wanted to know if anyone uses either of these with linux, and how much luck they've had with it...

i want to be able to use it as an external hd, as well as a music player without too much hassle...

thanks in advance,
~zach.

Turck MMCache 2.4.6 for PHP
I just downloaded Turck MMCache for PHP and tried to build it, but I don't think it's complete. The directions say to run the "./configure" script, but that script does not exist. The is a config.m4 and a Makefile.in, though. How can generate the configure script? Do I have enough source files, or am I S.O.L.?

Thanks!

No excuse not to pay up!
pay up!
Get your SCO licence at their handy online store!


I can't decide whether to pay the $199 lifetime licence for my desktop, or go with the $49 annual licence. Can anyone help?

External Harddrive
Im currently running out of harddrive space and decided to go ahead and pick up an external harddrive. I want to install Slackware 9.1 on the external. My Hardware is pretty much as up to date as it can get at this point. The harddrive im looking at is at http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?product_code=310703&pfp=cat3 . Anyone know if i will encounter any problems running the slackware 9.1 distro on there?
thx-
