installing software


Installed fedora 6 and things are just starting to go wrong.

One: System does not recognize my usb cdrw drive (iomega zip).

Two: When I installed I installed the default selection, which was gnome with the intention of installing kde and other software from the remaining cd's later. When I attempted to run add/remove software, it would not respond because I was not connected to the network.
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO CONNECT TO THE NETWORK TO INSTALL SOFTWARE FROM THE FEDORA CD'S.

Therefore I connected to the network and the system first downloaded updates for the software BEFORE allowing me to run add/remove software.

When eventually it allowed me to run add/remove software it was so slow. Eventually I was able to select KDE. Only for it to hang for an enternity with the message box "Resolving dependencies for updates">

I only want to install KDE from the cd's downloaded from bit torrent.

This is not going well. Thinking about another distro already.

Okay, found out the problem with installing software from disks.

A quick question.

Are there other forums where I could get help with the first problem I have which is trying to get the system to mount my cd-rewriter.
