    RE: Cant finish installation.
    Are you using an installation script? This is possible, but I have never executed this type of installation. [b]" I get one error message that in english would mean something like this..."Could not create partition on chosen harddisk" "porbable reason is that there is already to many primar partions present"[/b] This would mean, you have exceeded the number of primary partitions on your hard drive. You need to choose one of those partitions for the installation. Simply closing the box and proceeding will not fix the problem. Without a primary partition, no root filesystem can be created either. You have to go back to "setup partitions" to fix this problem.

    Surprised that you did not use the GeForce 210 initially. I have always felt AGP GPUs performed better then onboard GPUs. You are moving forward. It is just a matter of getting the game installed and running. It sounds like you were able to get the onboard GPU to render, hopefully. There is hope I think.

    You do know that the workaround in that link you posted is for "intel" graphics. Not sure how well it will work for you GeForce GPU, but you can try. It also mentioned that software-rendering does not offer the best support. Then again, your case may be different. I am curious. Did you start the game after or before you installed the driver?

    I was in your position when I started working in a terminal. After awhile you get used to it. Were you able to install wine and all the required files? Was there a problem with the graphics?
