I would like to know how to permanently configure my internet
connection? Every time I shut down the PC Linux OS, and then
boot it up again, I have to configure the internet settings so
that I can browse the internet and get my e-mail. I also end up losing
any e-mails that I had received before shutting down the OS.
Since I have a DSL connection, and my internet connection is
supposed to be 'on' as soon as I turn on the computer, I don't
understand why PClOS can't figure that out?
The other 'big' problem I have with the PClOS is that I can't
configure my Lexmark Z55 printer. Although the OS DID detect
that I had a printer connected to the computer, and it did
give me a dropdown menu for Lexmark printers, the particular
model I had (Z55) wasn't there. The closest model was the
Z53. So I selected that model, but still couldn't get the
printer to work. I couldn't even print a test page. If someone
could give me step-by-step instructions on how to go about
setting up my printer that would be greatly appreciated. If
I can't get the printer going, there's no point in having
the PC Linux OS installed on my computer. As easy as this
version of Linux is in setting everything else up, for whatever
reason, setting up a printer has always been the reason I have
swtiched back to using Windows XP.
Also, could somebody tell me how to select which OS runs first?
A simple explanation would be appreciated, especially if I could
do it from within Windows XP. Thanks!
