    RE: Wanting to make a Linux Based Desktop
    There r so many distro that can provide u what u want, just look for the right distro that suits ur requirements. U may try Linux Mint / Suse Linux / Ubuntu / Fedora.

    RE: Ubuntu server 12.04 Finishing installation loop
    Try to reinstall the same as u did earlier, just reinstall, not going to format..... and again if it asks for the same words, don't detach the usb and hope after completion u will get a menu to boot from hard disk also in spite of attaching USB. or u can make 1st boot device of ur hard disk going to BIOS setup after finishing the installation and reboot immediately.

    RE: Need Help With Dual Boot Install.
    According to Plan A- There is no probs to install Linux on another partition (extended) but be careful during partition, don't accept system proposal, best to select custom partition and declare partition as u need. Plan B - U may take a look at:www.pendrivelinux.com/ where u can find all of ur answers. and also see here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/129901/how-to-install-ubuntu-12-04-with-pendrive-linux as u work from flash drive, it is necessary to make boot sequence to boot from flash drive first !! No, it doesn't make any harm of ur Wind 7 OS. Yes, u may install other necessary SWs on the same drive. Plan C - If u r a new babie in Linux OS, then No, not necessary to format HDD and install Linux as standalone OS (See Plan -A). If u r expert then u may go for format and install Linux as single OS. Plan D - Using 7 u can not get understand of Linux though Windows 7 has some features that likely to Unix/Linux OS (referring to inner mechanism). 7 can't help u at all in this scenario. Best to install all necessary SWs on Linux OS and start to gather knowledge of OSS. One Last Item - Open terminal and type as: uname -mrs (for kernel version/PC architecture) cat /etc/*-release (for full history about OS) or lsb_release -a or more /proc/version

    RE: Lightweight/fast/stable distro which supports high-end machines?
    Linux is the best choice to support any amount of RAM, CPU etc, but distro may vary one to one. Technically can install just a bootloader and the kernel alone, but as soon as the kernel boots, it complains about not being able to start "init", then it just sits there and u can't do anything with it. It is part of bootloader that is in the MBR. The kernel sits somewhere on the regular area of a disk. The bootloader is configured to know where that is, so it can load the kernel and execute it. LFS / Minix have a good idea to figure out how to build a minimum system. U can also navigate Linux From Scratch: www.linuxfromscratch.org/

    RE: ncurses - start_color - screen color
    Let's back to the basics ! Have u added refresh(); after declaring color code.....start_color routine requires no arguments. It is good practice to call this routine right after initscr();. There r some basic colors like black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan, and white. The sample code looks like that: start_color(); color_set(COLOR_PAIR(1)); refresh(); Don't confuse this code with ur original one, this is just an example. COLOR_PAIR is declared as own func and 1 indicates as Red color. Please see here for tricks and color codes: http://uw714doc.sco.com/en/SDK_charm/_Color_Manipulation.html
