Falko! YOu are much needed!
 
Ok I am having such a hard time. I am not even sure if I have done every step right so far, but none the least I am on the MYSQL step.
When I paste the command, it tells me to place disk 2 in /dev/hdb, however my cdrom drive is /dev/hdc. so I am not able to install packages. What to do? I have made it this far, hate to quit now.:)

It seems that you havent configured URPMI correct. Please redo the step "configure URPMI" on this page http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_se...ndriva_2006_p4

:eek: OK It is this step I am having trouble with. --> touch /aquota.user /aquota.group
chmod 600 /aquota.*
mount -o remount /
quotacheck -avugm
quotaon -avug

No permissions, says that it could damage a file, please turn quotas off?
quota for users is mountpoint so it may damage a file?????
syntax error??

I so missed something

I tried doing the step before and I got the message "Already installed"?

:confused: HELP!!!

[root@server1 admin]# touch /aquota.user /aquota.group

quotacheck: Quota for users is enabled on mountpoint / so quotacheck might damage the file.
Please turn quotas off or use -f to force checking.

It seems you logged in as admin, not as root. You must login as root to do these steps.
