Yes! a little.

I have updated the kernel to the latest version and it now sees my Nvidia AND network card fine. I have lost sound output though... odd.

I am now able to boot into kde from the nvidia, the problem I am having now is that the MCE installer wont cache the Kubuntu disk, I am trying to use the AMD64 version and it wont cache, the MD5 matches fine. I am downloading the x86 version to see if that caches any better...

I'm still at it though ;)

So here is where I stand.

I have got the machine to see the Nvidia and the NIC with Kubuntu 7.10 (no updates, only compiled new kernel) everything works EXCEPT i cannot cache the Kubuntu installer CD during the CD install of LinuxMCE. I have tried with both a 2x burned CD and the MD5 checked ISO image, no luck. I then tried using the older kernel before updating and this didnt work either. I am not going to try to install via DVD again with the ATI card installed, once the install has finished I will install the nvidia drivers and try again...

Just curious...

Have you copied the MCE1&2 disks plus the Kubuntu .iso files to your HDD?

If so, what's your Kubuntu cache failure?
