Hey again,

  'Nother question. I installed SMF boards on my site, but, now I have some new questions, yay! After installation, it says this:

  SMF Absolute Path: INNCORRECT this is what it has for me: /home/bdsthrsi/public_html/smfboards

  SMF table Prefix: INNCORRECT this is what it has for me: smf_

  Then: not installed  not installed: SMF Forum installed on the same database as Joomla. (How do I do this?)

Thanks again all! I know I ask a ton.

You are using the Joomlahacks bridge, right?  When you install SMF, you need to make sure you choose the Joomla database to install it in to.

I used Fantastico to install it... so i couldnt install it straight into the same directory...

I didnt know any other way to do it and I tried following the install instructions to make it work, but they seem to jump around alot and confused me.
