Question How to connect to the internet


Hello

I have a 10 GB hard disk. Earlier I was running Windows ONLY. I created two partitions 6.5G(WINDOWS) and 3.5(LINUX) and then installed RH linux 7.2. I am a NEWBIE to LINUX.

My allocations were

Swap Partition - 256MB (I have a 128 MB RAM)
/boot partition - 50 MB
root (/) - remaining space

Are these partitions enough or should I have more partitions such as /home etc. ( I do not know why u must have /home or /usr).

I am able to connect to the internet on Windows. I have an external Modem. I do not know how to connect to the internet on LINUX. I also want to know what MOZILLA is?


Do reply.
