Well I finally tried PCLinuxOS, and I think its great. But i'm having some problems,
1. How do I access my cd drives, all my drivers are on my mobo cd but i dont know how to access the cd.
2. Internet (networking) only works under konqueror, i'd like to get firefox and p2p apps running.
3. How do i access my local windows partition?
4. Video only goes up to 1024x768, but i like it up at 1280x1024, is there some kindof bypass for this?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Regards,
Dick
FYI
1. rightclick on the desktop and add create new device, then go to the device tab and select the device you want.
2. Firefox should work as should the p2p programs . best thing is to explain your problem in the pclinuxos forum.
3. see answer nr 1.
4. I need to know what vid card u have but go to configuration-> master control center -> hardware -> screen resolution and choose 1280X1024. then ctrl+alt+backspace.
I am using the 1280x1024 resolution myself ( nvidia 6800GT and a samtron 19" crt) with no probs whatsoever.

Let's continue this discussion in the PClinuxOS forum http://www.pclinuxonline.com/modules...=Splatt_Forums

==========================
I haven't tried Mepis yet, but I'm about to try Ubuntu (as soon as the disks arrive). I've been reading rave reviews about its hardware recognition. I've been very pleased with Fedora's hardware recognition during installs on three totally different machines (a desktop and two laptops), though there was some tweaking required for an i810 video chip on one of the laptops. Give Mepis a try and let us know.....

c'mon, I think debian is easier to handle slack, but all in all they are both just as good...
