How do I create shortcuts?


I just installed the new FireFox, but I still haven't learned how to create shortcuts on the KDE start menu. Also, the only way I know of to start FireFox is to use the console to run "./firefox" from the FireFox folder. Is there another way?

You can just drag the icon from the Firefox directory onto your desktop and then click "Link here"

The source is in the cds go to install pakcages and search one called kernel-source-xxxx where the xxxx means the number of your kernel and install it.

thanks bro, ill try it. Hope it works.
my kernel version is (using uname -r) 2.4.22-10mdk.
so i should copy kernel-source-2.4.22-10mdk.rpm from the cd and extract it to /urs/src/2.4.22-10mdk is that right bro santas ?

No, you only have to go to install packages and search for kernel-source-2.4.22-10mdk then install it, or you can install it from CD (you don't need to copy it anywhere) double click on the file then login as root and follow the instructions.
