right am a total newbie to linux but i cant stand this windows shit any longer so ill have to get to grips with it somtime
ive managed to install linux redhat 7 and MS XP pro on my comp and they both seem to work fine, but when i came to install the Alcatel ADSL modem on redhat it fukin puzzled me totaly, ive read loads of howto's and downloaded the files they suggested and installed them the way they said but ran into prblems geting the same file version , ie, some times a file that they called version 2.4.4 would be unavailabe and the only 2.4.7 would be there, even though they all seemed to install correctly, but after i done everything the modem still didnt respond to anything i did and didnt log anything in l the console window, as i said i have XP and RH on the same machine so i need to reboot in XP to get different file versions and then bac into RH and try again, I think that it was the main kernal that was fukin it all up and i was told that once you have made a mistake with that kernal a full re-install will be required b4 i can start again,
i realy need someone who has the knoledge to help me or write a full how to ( up to date with lnks to files they know work ) but keeping in mind that i know very very little abot linux comands, a lot of the HowTo's take for granted that you already know how to unzip etc. I know this is askin a lot from people i dont know but this is my last chance at learning a bit about linux, untill i can get it on the net i can do anything with it
any help here would be great, and keep in mind ya converting som1 from widows to linux LOL
