ac97 audio drivers and rtl8139 drivers
After about a month i worked out how to use the CLI under linux and i got to the point where i complied the 2.4.18 kernel and installed the nvidia drivers, my question is now is that my sound doesn't work (i think its an ac97 audio device) also my rtl8139 lan card is not detected, is their a way in kde i can some how install drivers for these, if not, do i need to recompile the kernel since i did "make oldconfig" and missed the questions which may have been related to these drivers. So the big question is can i fix these problems quickly without needing to answer all the questions to the config questions when compiling the kernel?
Another question is i have windows xp on drive c and linux on drive d, xp can see drive d but cant access it via my computer, can i fix that? and to be loading different operating systems ive been changeing the boot drive in the bios, i know i need to change the boot.ini file in xp or somehow configure LILO (which is there already) or install GRUB, LILO and GRUB seem a bit to tricky to me (ive never heard of them before let alone configure them) so can someone help me to somehow create a boot screen and give me a nice step by step instructions how im going to do this?
