Tomorrow around 9:00 a.m. in the morning central time (USA) I am going
to be installing Linux for the first time. I have three distributions
of Linux: (Debian, Red Hat 5.0, and S.u.S.E. 5.2) The Red Hat
distribution I got from the the Linux for Dummies book and the S.u.S.E.
distribution I got from the English magazine P.C. Plus. I have already
tried to install and S.u.S.E. and I did not have enough room on my two
hard drives to pack everything there. I have successfully installed Red
Hat 5.0 successfully but did not like the window managers and had
trouble accessing the internet with it. So, I have two more questions
that I would like to have answered if anyone can help me. They are:
1. Since Red Hat 5.0 does not come with Communicator 4.0x can I get
the program from the SuSE CD as long as it is in the rpm format or "tar"
format (after I installed Red Hat 5.0)?
2. SuSE also had the KDE desktop manager which appeals to me a lot
from what I have seen . Can I also get that from the CD once Red Hat is
I am spoiled by the Netscape Communicator program for Win95 and I don't
think I can get on the net without it very easily so I hope you can help
me. I will await my installation until I hear from someone in the mail
