    i was messing around with styleXP and i changed the login screen. now whenever i try and login it gives me an error message before displaying the login screen. ... i just forgot what the error message says but something along the lines of error parsing line 14 or something i dunno. i had to load up using a linux live cd, so i can modify files and all that.

    When you remember exactly what the error is, how about posting it.

    yeah sorry bout that but im trying to delete the msgina.dll file and replace it and im hoping that works

    [email protected][system32]# sudo rm '/mnt/hda1/WINDOWS/system32/msgina.dll' -f
    rm: cannot remove `/mnt/hda1/WINDOWS/system32/msgina.dll': Read-only file system

    anyone know anything about linux and how to delete that?
