I am a newbie to Linux. I have successfully installed redahat onto my PC, but now wish to get X-Windows configured so I can access the internet. What is the easiest way to do this?

Troy - Start the xf86config program. This is the easiest way to get started with X. Choose conservative settings first, then once you get it going, play around to see if you can find optimal settings for your PCs configuration. For the TCP/IP stuff, goto www.linux.org and download the NET-3-HOWTO. This shows you what kernel options to compile, what settings in /etc are required, and sample dialup scripts. You will then probably want a WWW browser, and www.netscape.com has Linux versions of Navigator & Communicator.
