Enlighten and overall speed


Hello everybody.

I have a couple of questions:

I saw this guy with Linux Red Hat 7 and he has this environment called Enlighten, instead of using Gnome. ANybody knows where I can download it?? mmm sorry but also, how can I install it?

Other question is that this guy had a computer not as good as mine. I have a pentium 1.6 Gh 256 RAM and I gave 6 Gigas to Linux, including 500 for Swap. Still, it's not as fast as I'd like. Is there something I can do?

I used to have Linux Mandrake and when I installed it, it also installed my wireless internet card for LAN. but on Red Hat 9 it didn't recognize it. If I had the drivers, how can I install it?

Thanks a lot in advance for your time.

Poeta:

enlightenment is just a window manager. i guess it has a file manager.
enlightenment.org or rasterman.org i think.
there's probably redhat 9 rpm's on your cd's or the enlightenment site.
blackbox might make your system seem faster.
