no,there are more possibilities...kind of "direct install" like windows,doesn't work that great,emulating,linux-boot-discs with a installed windows...nothing is simple and I don't have much linux-xp...but in general...with linux is nothing impossible...just takes years^^

Dan, there is yet another person with a keylogger trying to tarnish your name. You might want to go see about clearing it up a little.

Yeah, there were quite a few comments there and soon after I posted there, here and sent a report in it was removed from the main list of new mods, and all the comments disappeared. So, I'm positive it was removed. :)

Yeah, the user account for the person that was posting the key loggers has poofed too. The person was fionashelper, they had keyloggers under Atlas v2, AltasLoot v2, KLHThreatmeter v2 and DeadlyBossMod V2.
