    You'll never know
    I have a p3 win98 pc with 64mb sd ram.


    I used a demo version of Ranish Parttion Manager
    to resize my D: drive,504 MB less . Now i want to use
    the space I freed, to make a new partition but i can't
    locate it.How do I do that?
    I installed Desktop Architect and then downloaded
    a harry potter connectix desktop manager theme.By
    mistake I downloaded the Mac version.It doesn't
    change the icons on changing the theme.I uninstalled
    both and reinstalled windows version of connectix but
    to no avail.Please help me.

    Also Kindly suggest me the configuration for a new
    top-end sub-75,000 PC primarily for gaming and running
    high end softwares.It should be totally future
    proof,fast with large screen area and a masterpiece of
    luxury.

    Some more Probs.
    1) Why does my 16X DVD reading CD's at
    52X copy a full CD in 40 minutes?
    2) I can't find Disk Management anywhere
    in the Control Panel.What to do?How do I create
    another taskbar on the desktop?How do I go about
    configuring Reliance Phone as a modem in Linux?
    3) How to convert *.wav into *.mp3/*.ogg
    and *.dat(VCD format) into *.mpg/*.mpeg? How to split
    a VCD into particular parts of certain length?Is there
    any software which can load the rest of CD except
    scratches or corrupt data? (All should be freewares)

    Thanx.anyone,pleasee help me.

    For the partition stuff you must have a bootable win-me floppy or cd. boot from the disk and run fdisk. you will see the partitions of your hard drive there. run through the options and make the free partitions as a logical drive under your secondary partition. restart the computer and then format the drive using the format command in dos mode again booting from the bootable disk. You now will be able to use the new drive.
    The config according to me for a 75k pc would be- A 19-21 inch monitor, 3.2 ghz presscott,915 intel motherboard,2 x 512mb 400mhz ram, 120gb hdd,a 16x dvd-drive, a 52x,32x,52x cd writer, creative audigy2 platinum sound card,creative 7.1 speakers, ati radeon 9800 pro graphics card, microsoft keyboard and optical mouse,and other miscelleneous things as fdd,web cam, mic,headphones,modem,ups etc which are important too.
    1) Your dvd reading cds at that speed is not the culprit but it may be your hard drive that is slow or the cds you are reading are corrupt. try defragging your hard drive.
    3)To convert wav to mp3 or ogg use audacity. Its a freeware. to convert to mp3s use must have a file called lame_enc.dll which can be found with any lame mp3 encoders. And for converting dats to mpegs use virtual dub. also a freeware. You can convert videos to as many formats as available on your pc. virtual dub also splits videos. To load from corrupt cds use isobuster. All these files can be found on www.download.com .

    ranjodh,
    Thats a lot to ask in One POST!

    *EDIT* oops! sORRY for the BLunder! I was under the impression u were using Windows XP!

    I am not much of a gamer, so may be others can give you a better idea of what PC config to buy!

    Regarding the second part of your question, if u mean create another toolbar - that's simple. Right Click the taskbar and select Toolbars->New Toolbar. A window pops up asking you to select a folder. The Files / Folders inside that will be the contents of the toolbar. Drag the newly created toolbar out of the taskbar. You should get your toolbar.
    For configuring Reliance phone under Linux:

    3. For converting to .mp3 / ogg you can try dbPowerAmp music converter. Google it to get the link. For converting vcd (*.dat) to mpg, use VCDGear - a great freeware tool. Again Google it 8)
