today i had to break into a red hat linux 7.2 machine because we forgot all the passwords.
-on the red hat screen hit ctrl X
-then hit tab to display kernels (default will have star)
-type "kernel_name 1"
you are then logged on as root.

I downloaded an avi file and when I tried to watch it in windows media player it said "error downloading codec." I found out that all codecs have a four letter code. The easiest way to find out what the code for a file is to open it in notepad, and look for it on the first few lines. I realized mine was DX50. After googling for info on DX50, I downloaded the codec from I had to scroll down a little to find the download for just the codec, not the viewers that divx offers.
