Thanks. It is Dell 2400 and for sure they are not providing the analog cable which runs between the CD drive to the sound card. Sigh..
One more quick question. I tried installing Realplayer8 from real.com using the .bin version. I installed it under /usr/local/Realplayer8. First thing is, it is not in the PATH. Secondly, if I execute "realplay", it just doesn't do anything.
Should I try the rpm ?
PS : I like these smilies !!
