Answers to questions never asked

Question #1: My windows XP system suddenly throws a “When trying to update a password the return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct” error message…what do I do ?
Answer: Did you not format your windows installation this week ? Well, now you certainly have to.

Question #2: What is the safest way to change the boot partition from a windows xp installation cd ?
Answer: You just boot with a linux live cd and change it using fdisk/cfdisk. It can probably be done with DOS fdisk ..using the recovery console. But…do you trust it ?

Question #3: I can’t get bwbar to compile, I keep getting errors about png functions like
undefined reference to `png_create_info_struct' , undefined reference to `png_init_io', etc

Answer: Make sure you have installed libpng. Then open the Makefile with a text editor and change the line LIBS = -lz with this: LIBS = -lz -lpng -lm. Don’t ask my why -lpng never gets inside the Makefile using the configure script. It just doesn’t.
