I did have other issues with ubuntu though, but i fixed them easily by installing fedora instead :lol: found this on digg.com: this should get beryl to work for you. Start fresh and install your driver like so.. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI Then install beryl http://wiki....

erm, would have to check on that.
I know I have some movies in mpeg format but I know of no other details.
I'll try to dig up the movies and see what I can find out.

What I know is that my dvd player also plays mp3 files, I can load a cd with mp3's and it will play them.

Most of the dvd players out there will gladly play divX, the problem lies with divX 3.11, many of them won't play movies encoded with the hacked M$ codec, or if they do play the movie it often is choppy.
I have a Philips DVP630 and it plays all versions of divX and mpeg files I've ever thrown at it.

Who's next, and what kind of repercussions in the long run will all of this have on the distros that don't wish...

You have to look at the supported compression formats, if MPEG1 and MPEG2 are listed you should be safe. Also you can look if the dvd player can play VCD and SVCD files, if it's the case you also should be ok. (You can find all this pretty easily in the specs on the manufacturer's website) Like you ...

You have to put the ip address(es) of your dns in /etc/resolv.conf but this shouldn't affect your ability to browse local files. If you can ping the pc's then you could try to use scp to move files around, see if that works. If it works you're probably missing a package to be able to do it graphical...

Do you have the correct dns entry in your ethernet card configuration?
You would have to point it to your router's ip.
Have you tried pinging the pc's?

Can you hit CTRL+ALT+F2 and look at /var/log/messages?
What I would try first is an apt-get update followed by an apt-get dist-upgrade.
