Is there any way I can tell the live cd to overwrite the puppy file with the default settings? I had just got finished setting up everything just the way I like it and downloaded a bunch of dotpups and now my xwin is broken. I did a 'rm /etc/windowmanager' thinking that would convince the live cd to replace it and any other window files corrupted. It didn't work. I hope there's a way to fix it because I would hate to loose all my files and programs and stuff. Thanks for any help.

or type
Code:
jwm
