    Default Made mistakes,is there a way to re-install?

    Hi!
    I have a dualboot with xp+bt4.
    Dunno why,i've made some mistakes, startx won't start anymore (haven't done anything...), wifi cards disappeared,and so on...
    Is there a way to re-install bt4 final over a pre-installed bt4 final? (without loosing xp and grub of course!).

    If I remember correctly, the script "install.sh" has an option to install the boot loader. Just uncheck that box when you re-run install.sh.

    But first, I would try to find out what I did to hose my installation. Did you try to edit any files?

    Of course, just use the install.sh script and select the appropriate options in the partitioning section of the install to use the bt4-prefinal partition to install bt final.
