I have been studing for Networking Essentials an thought I would put
Corel Linux on my computer that I use for these studies to see want
networking through Linux would be like.
I downloaded Corel Linux (all 280meg) so I don't have any doc.with it,
that I assume would come with it if I had bought it.
Thinking sense Linux is a open code there would be no problems finding
information on the Internet.
Being a newbee to Linux the info I found (all be it alot) very
confusing, it seems to me that the writers of these doc. like the HOWTO
ones think you already know Linux.
I have not bought any books on Linux are there any good ones out there?
Thinking that because Linux is a on going project wouldn't theses books
I started on computers using MS/DOS an have gone through all the Windoze
versions (before the hair on the back of your neck starts to rise) I
don't like windozzze much either.
But at least it's easy to set up and if you can't figure out something
you can find info. that a idiot could follow.
My install of Linux went with out a hitch but did not have a soundcard
or NIC support.
Trying to set up the sound through modcong did not get me anywhere, gave
The NIC after three days of screwing with it I got it to ping my Win98
box but can,t share anything so I figured I would go to SAMBA's site to
see what I could see HAHA same as the HOWTO's.
Why so many hoops to jump through
(compile,recompile,edit,edit,compile,edit,etc,etc,etc.) why so many
I think I will slide my Win98 drive back in the box and go back to my
studies and save Linux for another day, week, month, years.
