    Download the enclosed tarball to your /hack directory and type

    tar -xzvf hack.gz
    ls -l

    Once more, copy and paste to this thread.

    OK, you managed to get 9 copies of hack.gz on the drive.
    Let's get rid of them:

    rm "hack("*

    be sure to include the "

    i think i messed up one of the downloads. there is no "replace_initrd.x86.tar" when i expand the "replace_initrd.x86.tar.gz", that one doesn't show up.

    Hmm. The command

    tar -xvzf replace_initrd.x86.tar.gz

    should have decompressed the file. Try it again, and make sure there are no errors. Report back if there are, and copy and paste again if not.

    Oh, hey, it just occurred to me. Don't use <Ctrl>v or <Ctrl>c in the terminal window. To paste there it has to either be the middle button or a chord click of the left and right button together.

    you originally told me follow link in tagline (S3 Hacking Scripts) to post 36 - but there was nothing in that post. I found the download links for replace_initrd.x86xxxxx in post 39, that took me to NillaZilla's 2 downloads. I chose the non-mips one.
