I know this is servlets forum but there is really no place to ask this. I was chatting with someone about the problem of my servlet not finding a file for no good reason(servlet worked fine for over a year now suddenly for no reason i get error) and he suggested partitioning my HD and getting a different OS. slackware(although he mentioned a couple others). he said it could run Apache for me.

Slackware's a flavor of Linux, so you might want to look over in the Linux forum.
It's probably not a bad idea, since any version of Windows you could still find on store shelves would just mash that poor P133 flat. I started with Slackware, but use Red Hat these days - I've heard rumors that Slackware's fading away.

And just for another two cents... why would a different OS solve the problem?

I've used http://www.pcguide.com/cgi-bin/Ultimate.cgi for hardware/configuration stuff before.. perhaps it has some posts. You'll find the interface pleasingly familiar.

You seem to think the problem is with the ".."

I can tell you that I coded a servlet which uses COS to do file upload and then does a whole bunch of renaming and moving the files around. I always use a fully qualified path name though.

So have you tried /usr/local/etc/etc/webapps/examples/login.txt
(or c:/apacheDIR/tomcatDIR/webapps/examples/login.txt for windows)

Mike,
no I have not tried rewriting the servlet. It worked fine for over a year. Maybe that is the only solution though.
