    If I try to write Wii iso's with Linux it tell me that the image is not valid, but gc roms(homebrew : wiikey update) are correct images, what do I do to write them?

    how are you writing the images? i use growisofs with no problems. it could be that the images you have are scrambled. you'll need to use rawdump for windows (or wine, i think works) to unscramble them.

    i can confirm the unscrambler works via wine, so does GCOS self boot
    as for the images, brasero, k3b, gnome baker will all handle them easily

    I have the iso's in .iso form and burn them just by right clicking the file and selecting burn...
    Also I haven't been able to install 1 program or driver(except the ati drivers but nothing changed...) with linux anyway, so I found a solution:
    Install XP and it worked, I won't try Linux again, unless if it becomes user-friendly.

    if linux was as "user-friendly" as windows, it wouldn't be any fun [​IMG]

    Ubuntu is more user friendly than when I used Mandrake and Red Hat (when they still had those names).

    I can't see a reason to go back to windows full-time. If I need an app, there's wine... if that doesn't work, there's VMWare. If that doesn't work, I'm sure I can find at least 1 windows-based computer. If not, am I in the middle of the ocean?

    @7llusion, it seems like your using gnome, the default disk burning utility sucks. Grab brasero or k3b they will easily do the job.As for installing programs, what distro are you using, they all have a package manager. If you tell me which one i can help you.

    And yes you do need to learn a little to use linux as a power user, but the amount of control you get is incredible.
