View Full Version : Bios Virus

I have just installed Linux Mandrake 8.1 & dual boot between W2k pro. The first time I booted back into W2k the Bios guardian detected a virus & said it was on C:
No trouble until Linux went in.
Also are Device Drivers still needed in Linux? everything seems rather different!

It has probably noticed that your boot sector has changed after LILO (or GRUB) was installed, InoculateIT used to give me a warning when I scanned.

Yes linux still needs drivers, they are either compiled into the kernel or as loadable modules.
