    IMO anyone wanting to do this for real would be better off to just dual boot the machine for EFLive work.

    Good luck.
    Yeah if someone from WINE heard you call it a emulator they would go ballistic , Wine Is Not Emulator = WINE (FYI , I also call it a emulator) , just a hobby of mine trying to bring Linux a little closer to the mainstream world .
    Will try Codeweavers suggestions , but it sounds as if EFILive has the key syndrome , and needs Winders Explorer and Device manager to work .
    Yeah , I have dual booted Winders and Linux for some 10 years now , VMWare , qemu and Zen are nice but still Winders on top of Linux .

    I love it, thanks guys!! I really think it just may open you up to another customer base a tad more with the linux boxes... i mean, efi is a tinkerers tool; and Linux is the same, it seems to go hand in hand!

    Yes, linux is like a car you're building up... recompile a new kernel every week, write a kernel driver to support a new card, write better lspci and lsscsi utilities, write a new shared library to use sysfs, modify ~/.bashrc and /etc/bashrc, write a few bash/korn scripts, edit/recompile gcc... it goes on... no boredom...

    NDISWrapper is for PCICMA cards Modems and such (use to run NDISWrapper a few years ago , before the kernel had card support added) , it is a thought , try and let us know if you get anywhere with it . I think EFILIve is locked by USB driver installation and unless EFILive is triggered by that event it will balk about it .
    Yeah I think if you can get EFILive pass the USB detection process you will be fine , I have not played with it anymore yet , but I seem to remember WINE having a way to specify a device and point to it , kernel 2.6 has FTDI drivers already so getting WINE and EFILive to see them is needed , Linux sees the V2 and loads drivers for it .
    Linux has matured and doesn't' t need the Kernel building of older years past , much easier , the phobia about Linux needs to be dispelled , it is harder than Winders but God 10 times more secure .

    I have played around with Linux, the kids love it. Runs good, 8.04 was last I was on, kids loved it, wife didn't mind, but she wanted her WSIWYG editor that only worked on IE. So I gave in....

    I have the drive.... Might have to get it going again on an external drive...

    I put Ubuntu (I still can't pronounce it right) on my Laptop.
    So far I am pretty impressed, it's certainly feels like it does things pretty fast, the boot time compare to Vista is amazing, it's done by the time Vista has just loaded the login screen.
    As a total Linux newbie it doesn't seem too hard to use and configure, the only annoying thing was it initially installed itself in a 2Gb partition, which was full by the time the install was done and I could not update anything and I could not be arsed trying to figure out how to add space!
    Anyway, I re-installed it to a 20Gb partition and it is working much nicer, in fact I don't think the initial install actually worked 100%, there was some odd things happening.
    It's never going to replace M$ products in mass, but at least it's a Linux that does not require you to lock yourself away in a room for 6 months trying to learn it, err, like DOS used to be

    Cheers,
    Ross

    Oh my God , I like to fell out of my chair when I saw this .
    Congrats on the install , Ubuntu is okay for new users and has a good support base .
    I prefer SuSE , but that is me , Linux has come a long ways , with repository management of packages , it is almost as easy as M$ .
    There is a partitioner utility in most Linux Distros now .

    Get a t-shirt , shows character .
