well, i use the mepis livecd, so theres no need for a floppy. anyway, i dont feel like restarting ATM, im tired. ill try that first thing in the morning, if it dosent work, ill reinstall and uses kde final instead of the RC, would probably save a headache. on the other hand, if i want to learn more about linux, doing a reformat every time i get a problem probably isnt the best idea.
Edit: i have dsl hooked up to a router. i got a new wireless router today and even after installing that(wired connection to my pc) it didnt work either. although the livecd works fine with both. there is nothing wrong with my hardware setup and its just a lan connection that any OS can pick up. in fact, i networked a windows xp, windows 98 and and mac os (9 or below, i dont know which one. it was ugly though, so it couldnt have been 10) computers today too with the same router and they all worked with no configuration.
