first of all thanks for such a good descriptive forum and a very good section for newbies i learned quite a lot of things like mounting my fat32 partition as well as shifting to text mode and shutting down in linux which for me is a big achievement
anyways i found answers to some of my questions in here while i searched but some of them are unanswered so i want to ask them here they are.
1. In debian Linux my AGP card which is Winfast A180B cannot be detected so the x window system cannot be installed i found a newer version of x at xfree86.org but the documentation in there is poor and it doesnt work out to be the way it says it is to be installed so any advise on how i can upgrade???
2. On my red hat 9 system i can easily connect to my windows 2000 server system remotely by using terminal services but from windows i cannot do this any guide to any application that can do this??
3. How do u access share from any windows system to a linux system or visa versa any guide or advise will be good.
4. My Red Hat linux system cannot detect the sound card it detected it when the first time i booted linux and configured it but now i cant see it or install it via sound card detection.
5. i have a knoppix cd that i use to boot into my home system so that i dont have to install linu on my hard disk....can anyone tell me that can i copy files from my windows partition that i can view in knoppix to any cd.....what i mean to say is that can the knoppix cd be removed after i boot up in knoppix so i can put another blank cd and copy some files to it???
i know all this i asked is asking too much for a 1st post but i know u guys will help me out so i can start using linux a bit more easily
many thanks in advance
EDIT: found a solution to my network sharing problem in a thread posting for the help of others
to access a windows folder form network first share a folder in windows then do this in linux
How are the other users sharing their data? Are they Windows PCs too? If so try:
$ mkdir /home/windows
# mount -t smbfs -o username=win_user_name //ipaddress/share /home/windows
Enter your password when prompted and you can view the shared files in /home/windows.
