How do I install pppd on Mandrake 9.1?
I am a complete Linux virgin, but I recently got a laptop in addition to my Windows XP System. Since I had Mandrake, I thought "Why not set it up to dual boot?" (I use the windows GIMP a lot, and had heard the Linux version was immeasurably better.)
Anyway, I would quite like to surf the internet, but in order to connect I need PPPD. I've found out I didn't have it, and have downloaded the tar.gz file.
Then i came across my largest problem: I have absolutely no idea how to actually install a non-standard package on Linux? How do i do it? Ive read the help files that come with Mandrake and PPPD, but they might as well be written in chinese.
