first installation!


I just finished installed redhat linux 9.0 on my "VMware Workstation"
and i'm surfing around to see if I could get used to it
im so sick of windows operating systems... very very dull

I just wanna ask 1 question, on my winxp, I used to create "new connection" using "my network places" and create a new broadband connection "pppop" so I can connect to the internet using my dlink (wireless)

I was just wondering how can I do it on linux so I can connect to the internet?

I'm surprised it did not handle this for you on the install.

have you tried to run 'redhat-config-network' ?

If you are running x window system as root you can use the Internet Configuration Wizard
run 'internet-druid' in a shell.

You need to know all the information from your ISP

What was the error?

What about internet-druid?

Are you running a GUI?
If so it's under Main Menu => System Tools => Internet Configuration Wizard
or some such place

Well go for it. You may like Fedora too. It's a step in the right direction I think.

Personally I cant sleep when I encounter problems like that so you should solve this problem then destroy it and install Ubunto

seriously though you will run into problems in Ubunto also so you may as well start somewhere.

Just generally speaking. Computers + Operating systems = problems. It's just the way of it. But the good news is that there is never a problem that can't be solved.
