Hmm...well, could you link me to some reputable sites then that have what I need to fix this? I really want to get this running, and if I can get a decent temp job on top of my full-time job, it's getting to the point I almost just want to get a copy of Windows and set up a dual-boot so I can get it done before ME3 comes out, and to avoid this issue in the future, so I really want to get this working as soon as I can.
