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!!
