recently installed redhat 9.0 on an hp omnibook 4150 notebook, it seems to run nicely, stable and all that jazz, however a few things concern me, the soundcard is what was probed, but wont be installed (doesn't ask for drivers) and my external cdrom (paride) isn't detected at all, now i've been to this site, and tried to get the gist there
cyberelk.net/tim/parport/paride.html and i got confused after the insmod part :\
anyone care to help a n00b like myself out? im n00bish to hardware kinda stuff like this, where i have to go nitty gritty in inconsole and changing configs, but not a n00b to some parts of linux :\ i know that sounds stupid, but yeah.. i wanna make this a desktop workstation notebook thing so i can do everyday stuff i do on windows i.e. word processing, internet, email, work-related notes, and what not, etc etc etc, and at the same time want to learn more about the whole linux revolution so to speak
im happy to keep replying to this post for more information if anyone needs, i'd be as frequent as possible..
so yes.. once again..
