Debian Linux Woody and Red Hat Linux problems


Hello Everyone,
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

as root:

# 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.

no you cannot.

2. If you are running red hat 9, your kernel is probably outdated and you should think about switching to fedora core.

Fedora is the Red Hat for the consumer. Red Hat 9 is quite old and I wouldn't be surprised you are experiencing problems. Try downloading the newest Fedora Core version and I'm sure you will be much happier.
