Dualboot SUSE 10.1 & XP


Hey people,I know you've heard this 1,000,000,000, times but,
I need help.
I am very new to Linux but I am hooked.
I installed SUSE 10.1 on my Toshiba laptop with XP.
The install went well but I can't get my NIC,wireless,ethernet card,sound...to work.
I don't know if it's a simple fix or not.
I really don't know where to start.
Thanks for the help.

Well, I am new to openSUSE, but I also had a problem with the sound and solved it.

Try this (assuming you have a Gnome Desktop like me):
Computer->Control Center->YasT
[enter root password]
->Security and Users->User management
Select your username
Click on edit
Open the "details tab"
Check the "audio" group on the right
accept,etc

And then it should eventually work.

I'll try finding the topic where I learned this.
Maybe there's a general command-line way, because I don't know how it's in KDE.

edit:
Here it is:

Try this:

open up a konsole and do su:
type ur password and press enter!

Now as root do: usermod -Gaudio `username`

without the quotations offcourse!

Now the user should have sound!

Apparently, "A lot of things that were broken in SuSE 10.0 and 10.1 are fixed in 10.2."

So maybe you should install version 10.2.

And also follow this thread for infos about getting the internet to work:
