A bit confused...
Posted on 2000-04-18
Hi, I've written e-mails to a few Linux Tech Support people and, unfortunately, do not understand some of the answers. Maybe I'm just confusing myself. Here's my question (s)...
After install, how do I configure things? For example, I do not have ANY use of my cd-rom, I cannot set-up an e-mail account because my ethernet card is not being found and I cannot install a game (Half-life, for instance) so that I can run my server.
My computer information is:
IBM compatible PC
P2 300 Mhz
SIS 6326 PCI Graphics Accelerator 8meg video card
Creative SB Plug and Play 16bit sound card
D-Link DFE-530TX PCI Fast Ethernet Card
Road Runner cable modem (soon to be ADSL within three-five days)
My install went well with no problems encountered, but I am not able to do anything that I mentioned above.
The answers I get are great and informative, but, being so VERY new to Linux Mandrake 7.0 (or any Linux at that matter) the terms used are over my head. So, if someone could help me with these items and answer them in laymens terms (in windows language would be nice) that would be great and my server would be up and running, thus producing a happy clan of folk. Thank you, Douglas.
