2- shutding down X-server (the GUI thingy in -->XANDROS<--)so I can Install nvidia drivers as painful as possible (if not possible no biggie anyway)
3- any modem/system/etc Tweak that I should know of? Xandros runs on Debian 2.4.22-X1 (dunno if this helpfull or should I give more details, if so please tell me the steps necesarry to tell you guys)
4-COMPILING!!! I already have GCC but have 0 idea on how to use it

1 from a terminal as root alsaconf
choose your card, configure it. then alsamixer
unmute your sound and set default volume levels. the alsactl store
to store your settings.

2 ctrl+alt+backspace should kill the xsession

3 we'll need to know what modem you have

4 shouldn't be an issue until you have something to compile

5 http://linux-newbie.sunsite.dk/lnag_commands.html

6 good luck

only 1 gripe
could you make #1 more detailed?

or do you think I should go experiments on Xandros own boards?
as they're "supposed" to have a better idea on how there Debian works

open a terminal

Code:
peacedog@peacedog:~$ su -
Password: <enter your root password>

root@peacedog:~#alsaconf
this is from my terminal, yours will look a bit different, i.e. your user and host names. once your this far, you'll know if you have alsa installed. if you do, the program should open and give you a card to configure. if not, you may have to go get it. the latest alsa package can be found here

http://www.alsa-project.org/

as far as checking other boards, any information from any board can useful in a search for answers. there is however, a search function, and a debian distrobution specific forum, here at lq. you can find them here

good luck.
