    6.3e if you really want to be current, but I would stay with 6.2a if I were you.

    i was in the process of installing a script on my XBOX that would let me stream my recordings to it.I did some changes to the rc.sysinit.author file and then when i rebooted to try it,i find out that i dont have any communication.

    BTW i backed up the original rc.sysinit.author file just in case

    Most common cause for that is editing the file on a PC, ftping it over, and not setting rc.sysinit.author chmod +x (executable)

    if that's the case, unless you took precautions (serial cable + either changed password or other boot protection) you'll have to pull the drive to fix it.

    Go to mfslive.org and download the free boot cd. Connect your drive to your pc, boot from the cd and mount the drive. Then make changes as needed.

    just want to make sure im doing this right.

    Once im booted with the mfslive cd Ill mount the drive with this command "mount /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author" and then "chmod 755 rc.sysinit.author" to make it executable.

    Thats it?

    Thanks

    Hey guys sorry for taking so long to get back at this,I was out of town for a while.

    Im trying to get this going but not getting far.I boot from my MFSLive disk and try to find the drive and nothing,I have a USB to IDE adapter try typing bootpage -p /dev/sda,b,c,d and nothing,try pdisk -l /dev/hdd and it fails.



    any ideas?

    Thanks
