Posted by neighborlee on April 23 2008,14:17hi there,
I have a older PII 333 Tecra 8000 with one of those magic chips, and it wont boot past the line that mentions .Xauthority.I just get a cursor and nothing else happens, and wondering if anyone can help me with this.

ok thanks for reply, and it seems I was making a error in regard to not using the default mouse mode not thinking it would work , since my laptop is old enough and has that nasty little rubber nub thing in between keys ...really annoying but hey its all I have atm.
Ill post now on networking area of forum for further help as I 'm definitely stuck with that.
