Hi, I'm scarily new to GNU/Linux, having played with an old version of SuSE many moons ago (infact when my P200 was new and shineyish).
I'm running RH8.0 and I've managed to get Nvidia drivers working, and everything else pretty much worked out of the box (still excluding winmodem- don't go there
- I'm not worried though because I'm on a three-week count-down to DSL.).
But having looked a few places and read a few things I'm left with a (big?) question; I've seen that there are optimised kernels for Athlon, now I have an AthlonXP based system, but my kernel is marked as optimised for i686.
So, my questions are; is this likely to be a problem? Should I optimise my kernel for Athlon? If I should, how do I do it?
A couple of thoughts on this; from first boot my "Red Hat Update Agent" is flashing red, so I need to let it online (which I will on DSL) to do some updates, will this "magically" fix this issue (or am I just proving my Noobness?)?
Cheers, and sorry if this is posted elsewhere.
