VASM does need work, what's the road map on this as its possibly the USP of Vector.

Thanks overthere, I think we got all of these fixed in next iso.

Thanks for the feedback!
Thank all y'all. Will let you know of my success or failure.
You can partition the drive ahead of time, or you can do it during, using the included gparted program. Whatever you prefer.

If you have more questions, do not hesitate to ask here. :)

I recommend Video Converter. I always use it to convert WMV to MOV so that I can play the videos on Mac or iPad on the go. It supports batch conversion, that's quite time-saving.
Thanks, MJ. I have burned the cd of VL lite. A final (I hope) question: should I partition the HDD before I even try to install VL lite to preserve my Windows Partition?

Like StrayBit said you are runnning from a live CD version.  Download the VL Light install version and burn it to disk then install from that.

If you are running VL off the CD, you are using the Live version.  Last week when I was looking at it, I saw an Install button under Menu/System.  You can tell it where you wanted it installed to.  I didn't need to use the partitioning under Install - not even sure if it is there - but Gparted (again under System) is in the Live version and I have used it on several occasions with out difficulty.  One thing I found the hard way with Windows 7 is that I needed the Windows CD before I could use Windows after I resized its partition.  Don't know if that applies to XP but would like to know as I may be doing an XP soon.  (I haven't used Partition Master so can't advise on it.)
During the installation process it will ask you a lot of questions.  Most of them are pretty easy to understand.  Just don't get in a hurry through them.  I have fallen victim to that many times, especially when setting Users and Passwords - make sure you have "saved" it BEFORE you hit Next.
Hope this helps.
