We *are* reading your posts. Like the one you posted in a separate topic (which is ok) :
Trying to use ransh part edit or cute part edit, and when loading i run into UNPACK: Cannot find file "a\level1 o2 o 3 FILENAME.cab, then it drops to cmd line root drive
I may have made a mistake. Since both topics appear at the same time, I thought that it could be a problem with the CD media, the CD drive, or the ubcd503.iso you downloaded.
Antivir problem: SOLVED.
Downloaded ubcd503.iso: checked OK.
optical media tested: PARTIALLY.
The rest of the problems could be divided in categories:
1_ Ease of UBCD use: you select some program from the UBCD menu and:
1.A_ it fails to do anything, like Gparted (Victor, UBCD dev, needs to correct this).
1.B_ it doesn't react the way the user expected and there is no indication about how to proceed.
2_ DOS-based programs are failing (RPM and CPM, according to your other topic which I quoted here).
3_ When PartedMagic starts, the display is, at least, not adequate.
About the problems in category 3, whichever version you use, I would try different options from the boot menu, instead of selecting the default. There is the (good) chance/possibility that simply changing to some other boot option from PartedMagic could solve the display problem (less RAM used and/or VGA display mode, just to mention examples).
If changing the boot options of PartedMagic doesn't work for you, then I would suggest Icecube's previous suggestion:
it might be a good idea to just download the last version.
You can install it to an UFD with unetbootin too, if you don't want to burn a CD.
The current PartedMagic version at http://partedmagic.com
could have solved the problems, but I would try changing the PartedMagic boot options first (since you already have PartedMagic in UBCD).
In the meantime, I'll try to reproduce the problems of category 2. Can you describe your system (RAM, HDD exact model, and processor)?
Have you tried those 2 programs in a different computer? If you do, you don't need to actually do any partition action with Ranish nor Cute Partition Managers. It would be just to test them in a different computer to see if they at least start correctly, so we can isolate the problem.
