How to get and install dialup, and WWW browser?
Posted on 1998-08-23
I have Linux Red Hat version 5.0 which I installed on a seperate HD. I got it working fine, I got the modem working with some simple terminal program I found in Xwindows. Now I want to get on-line with it so I can use Linux in place of Win95, Win98, WinNT for as long as I can get things done with Linux.
I need to download Netscapes Linux version of browser and install it along with dialup PPP on my modem. I can download the Netscape (once I find it), but I don't know that I will be able to copy it to my Linux drive. Can I put my Win95 boot HD in as a second HD and copy from it after Linux is booted. I'm thinking I can tell Linux to mount the drive once it is in and copy, or install from it. I also have a CDR I can use to make a CDrom to possibly copy from it.
Now, I would like instructions for Installing dialup PPP networking to my ISP, and some good suggestions for getting the files I need onto my Linux HD after they are downloaded to my Win95 HD. I now have the Netscape for Linux 2.0, it is on my Win95 HD.
