comment How do I split mp4 files when Yamb fails?
ffmpeg works fine on Windows, but you can always use Super or meGui. sourceforge.net/projects/megui or erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

comment Inheritance for File Associations under Windows XP?
You can add your own actions there for the rrx files. I think that your custom actions for .XML Documents should be carried over too, but I'm not sure.

comment Print Screen key going to black and white
Maybe paste it into a different imaging program? Irfanview is great at handling screenshots and all types of images. If it's still broken, then you know it's not your image viewer/editor.

comment FTP client on windows that save session password in encrypted text
I had a look at Filezilla's bug tracker and there has been a lot of argument about this. The Filezilla coders argue that there's no point as your OS should guard all your passwords for you. Encrypting them once your machine has a keylogger installed makes no difference. is.gd/6RdTl

Weird. It should be there. Try doing "cd /var/lib/dpkg" and then "sudo nano status".

comment Most suitable Linux distro for a ~2003 laptop
I agree on the Ubuntu advice. I'd try to upgrade your RAM if possible when running any Linux - 1GB is cheap and will make a big difference.
