It's no bother, Frank; we're just here having a Linux question-answering

I think he may be saying that he had to install Wind0ws in order to use
a Canon scanner (perhaps one not yet supported by "xsane" or other Linux
apps), which - as usual - destroyed the partition table. After
reinstalling Linux (?), he can't remember the necessary settings for
Xwave - or perhaps all of Linux (i.e., the LILO "mem=XXXX" switch.)
Frank, feel free to correct me if I've got it wrong. However, Thomas is
right in that you do need to explain what you need a bit more clearly;
my guesses could be right or way, way off - there's no way to tell.

Given Frank's address - the little ".de" at the end is usually a hint -
that may not be a useful thing to say, Thomas. Perhaps just the emphasis
on clarifying his statement of the problem will be sufficient. :)
