No, that's not what I'm saying at all! I was a bit absent-minded when I wrote the post and didn't think about that, sorry. :wink:

I don't believe any of the HTML standards require <META> tags (maybe XML/XHTML does, not sure). I can understand the need for <HEAD> tags even in framed pages (actually frames are not allowed in many standards, correct me if I am wrong). Actually, my page was not valid html transitional until I inc...

Yes i agree. The symptoms you prescribed though resemble those of a spambot scan. I wouldn't unblock it if i were you void, but then again you know that already. :wink:

It could be a spider or web-crawler. It could also be a spambot. In either case, that IP address points to that site which is strange. If I were you I'd block it as well.

Well, I don't like frames either (personal opinion) eventhough they're quite practical, mostly because of the lack of compatibility with older browsers. However you could always create your page without frames and redirect browsers that don't support them, to that (a pain in the arse if you ask me :...

My advice Ice9 is to get HTML Tidy , which I STRONGLY recommend. Now, as for your <HEAD> tags, my suggestion is to include them there also just to comply with the W3C standards and support them as much as possible. As for the spelling mistakes I really don't see why you can't use the word Linux on t...

Hey, I haven't thought of that. Perhaps Calum is indeed trying to install Xandros :)

I think it works both ways in recent distros. However, I'm not certain if that would work in distros other than RedHat. For example, neither "boot: text" or "boot: linux text" worked in Calum's case and admittedly the "Welcome" screen in Debian's installer does not include these options. That's real...

Rubbish! SuSE's distro is fine. A bit buggier than RedHat's but all in all a decent distro.

Sorry for doubleposting what's already been posted at the MES forums. If it goes in framebuffer mode, type at the boot prompt:

Code: Select all

boot:nofb
That should do it.

I also wrote that in the MES forums: At the boot prompt you could type the following at the boot prompt: boot: text I don't know if that helps though, since I thought Debian does not have a graphical installer.
