Instaledl a Linux on my computer – Ubuntu 6.06

Follow-up to Fedora Core 5 installation problems—–NTLDR is missing" error from Joseph's blog

Finally, I didn't install Fedora 5 but instead I installed Ubuntu 6.06.

For me, I am a newbie anyway. So I cannot see too much differences between fedora 5 & Ubuntu 6. Let me keep explore Ubunutu and build up my own experience. My feeling towards Linux is much better than Windows XP. I like Linux :)

About my previous Thread, I found out what the problem cause the NDTLR is missing…...It's a bit fundemental. Long time ago, when I add my second HDD, I think I wrongly set the jumper. Hence, my Window was then reconize to be installed on HDD1. And when I was installing Linux, it was then installed on HDD0. This is a bit confusing for my computer, I think. even I change the GRUB by:

map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd0,1)

or any other sequence, combination of 1,0 / 0,1 / 0,0 ….. also doesn't work. I finally, set the jumper, BIOS correctly and then Install both XP & Linux. They happy together now…...

Statistical Package for MLE for VG, NIG, or any other stock models.

Is there any statisitical package for Calculating MLE exist?

I am looking for one for my dissertation. I want to validate VG , NIG, for the Credit spread. To calculating the MLE ( or any other Estimator ) is a major task of my dissertation.

Will any exisiting package for these kind of models, other than typical models? Any one can give me a hints??

Other than Probability plot, QQ–plot, and format test for validating a continous distribution?

Any one interested in pricing CDS option, very welcome to leave me a comment :)

Fedora Core 5 installation problems—–NTLDR is missing" error

Anyone using Fedora Core 5 ?? I want to give it a goal on my own desktop…however, i failure to create a dual boot system…:(

Any Linux veterans would like to share their experience??

"NTLDR is missing" error

I use Window XP and recently installed FC 5 on my second HDD. There is something I am not sure for the installtion process.

Q1. During my installation of FC5, there is no GRUB setting option. Is that normal??
( I saw the installation guide and there should be ?! )

After installtion, I configure the GRUB to boot Window XP. However, an error message :

NTLDR is missing
press alt–ctrl–del to restart

Q2. Is it because GRUB overwrite the bootloader of XP? How to avoid this? ( suppose we should have options during FC5 installation, right??)

I will keep trying to install FC5 until I success!!

Unbelievable! Someone add my blog to my favourite

I cannot believe that someone added my blog to "my favourite". It's very encouraging!! I decide to update more frequently… under the constraint that I have free time. :P

Ok. This time I want to talk about my another favourite thing! FILM.

There is a very famous Hong Kong film star call Stephen Chow. He is famous for his "funny" moive. I watched all his moive.


This link contain almost all of his film and TV series. Very informative.

However, as a Hong Kong people, I understand that he is not a funny person at all. He out of school at 16. He want to join the TV station's drama training course but failed. He started his actor's career as a "K li Fee" ( means very unimportant person in english). I remeber I first saw him on TV was being a "small" ganster, just standing behind other "big brother". Ironically, the main actor in the scene is his best friend, Tony Leung, who is also a very famous actor in Hong Kong. He worked in a children show for about 3 years before he had a chance to being a actor. Then, his career is flying high and become "The King of Comedy (1999)".

Stephen's early performance on stage make me think of another famous star – Charlie Chaplin. ( In fact, stehpen use very traditional way to act in his early moive, e.g., when he is happy, he is jump up a bit and kick his leg. ). Personally, I wonder Charlie is not a "funny" person at all – unsuccessful marriage and pressure from making moive. There is a picture I think reflecting very much his true life and character. This picture is taken on the next of the fire in Charlie's studio, 28 / 9 / 1926.

Charlie Chaplin

For those who want to know more about charlie, go to this link.


There are million interesting things about moive. But, talk later.

Harmonica world

Harmonica playing is easy to learn but expressive. Using harmonica to play music is like telling story. Both are using our mouth, our breathe and our heart.

Unfortunately, I have no harmonica to play at the moment because all of them are "sleeping" in my Hong Kong's house. Looking forward to buy one here!

For those who looking at this blog, be patient please, I will tell more about harmonica in my blog. If you are playing harmonica, blues, chormatics, whateverr kinds of harmonica, welcome to leave message. Do you want to play harmonica together??
