can't run programs
I'm a complete newbie to Linux, and I decided to install it on my HP Pavilion Zt1000-series laptop. I finally got mandrake 10.0 Community installed on it, and I'm using the Gnome GUI, but I can't seem to run programs. I've gotten Mozilla and the terminal to run every once in a while, but more often than not it will show an icon in the task bar and then the icon disappears. Can anyone help me?
