o.k. how do I get to a shell, I'm sorry I'm completely new to this so I don't know where everything is. I know windows really well and since different names are used for everything I need to learn the terminology, and the sha1sum file doesn't have an extension. I went to the folder tools in windows and had it show the file extensions and the FC5 mirror had a .ISO extension but the Sha1sum file didn't. they were both in the same folder when I downloaded it, how can I find a user group in malden massachusetts? I really like linux and now that I have installed on it's really cool. and for resolution what does the Etc between the two slashes mean? also I had windows on my hard drive and I installed FC5 in graphical mode, I had an ntfs partition which was hda1 (35GB) then I made a boot patition which was hda2 (100MG) and then an extended partition which had a forward slash ( / )(41GB) as a symbol and a swap(2048MB) partition too. then it said it was going to install or install the booting files, I think it said that GRUB was going to be installed on the extended partition ( / ) but it had a browse option or button and I hit browse and I had it installed on the boot partition. Now it boots from fedora and it says booting in and it counts like 5 seconds and I have the options to load Fedora, / , and windows. when I hit fedora it loads fedora, when I hit / it says error and when I hit windows it loads windows. wasn't windows supposed to be the booting OS? since it was there first and why did fedora take over? was the windows boot loader erased? and how would I arrage the partitions so it boots from windows? it doesn't really matter what OS boots the pc but I would like to know how to set it up so it boots from either OS because it would be really nice to know. and is the whole fedora OS installed on the 100MB boot partition?
can you help me please? thanks.

To find the shell, look for entries titled "Terminal" or "Konsole" in the menu for the desktop environment you're using. There might be an icon on the bar at the top/bottom of the screen.

The slashes separate directories. / is the top-most directory in the tree. "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" refers to a file (xorg.conf) which is in a directory called X11, that itself is in a directory called etc (and again, etc is in /). Case-sensitivity is important: etc is not the same as ETC or Etc!

GRUB overwrote your master boot record presumably as you told it to during the installation. What do you mean by "boots from Windows"? Do you mean using Windows' bootloader? This can be done, but I'm not sure how. Search on LQ as I know this has been asked. No, your installation won't be all contained in that 100 MB partition. That partition is for things like the kernel image, GRUB's config file and other stuff.

the other command that you told me had the same output of lspci, I coudn't get back to you sooner because I had no way to copy all those commands and then paste them here. I had to get a flash drive and then download openoffice.org so they could be read on windows.
I'm really new to linux and I don't know about it so thank you for your help, later.

Your Ethernet card should be working, the module is already loaded. For wireless you can use this driver, or use NdisWrapper (which lets you use Windows drivers). The former is actually included in the stable kernel as of version 2.6.17.

Hi
I don't know what to try, I got ndiswrapper but I couldn't find a driver for it on the list of drivers that's on the website and it said that using the cd drivers isn't recomended. on the other link there was two other links, the first I didn't know which one to download and the other one was berlios.com and I downloaded a driver. I'm going to try it out.

I don't know how to install any of the drivers you said, and I'm having trouble with ndis wrapper; on the installing intructions the first steps this is what it said:


Prerequisites
You need a recent kernel at least 2.6.6 or 2.4.26 with source. Under Red Hat or Mandrake, the sources can be installed using the package kernel-source<kernel-version>.rpm command. Make sure there is a link to the kernel source from the modules directory. /lib/modules/VERSION/build should be a link to the kernel source, where VERSION is the version of the kernel you are running. If there is no link, you'll get an error at the make install step. To create a link, assuming the kernel sources are present, use the command
ln -s /usr/src/linux-<kernel-version> /lib/modules/VERSION/build
Make sure you have started compiling the kernel sources, so needed header files are present. Some vendors ship ndiswrapper in their distributions. Either use it or make sure you remove it before installing ndiswrapper by yourself. Make sure you have the Wireless Tools installed. Again, there is a package that comes along with Red Hat and Mandrake distributions. If you are using Debian you can install the wireless-tools package from the mirror, here.
[edit]
Upgrading
It is always a good idea to uninstall the current version and reinstall the new version. This way, if there are changes in formats of configuration files, etc., the new version will work without problems.
[edit]
Downloading
Download the latest version of the ndiswrapper sources from here and extract it with
tar zxvf ndiswrapper-version.tar.gz
This will create the ndiswrapper-version directory. Change to that directory with
cd ndiswrapper-version.
If you are having problems with the release version, or you want to try the bleeding-edge version, you can either get the latest SVN version with
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/...nk/ndiswrapper ndiswrapper
or if you already have SVN code, with
svn up
Note that the snapshot tar balls and SVN versions may or may not work - they may not even compile. If you have problems with these, please don't complain, except to provide feedback/debug trace to help fix bugs. However, sometimes, these may work better than release versions, as bugs are fixed, features are added, etc.

what's the kernel version for fc5? how do I install the wireless tools? it also says Make sure there is a link to the kernel source from the modules directory. which then gives you a command which requires the kernel version, how can I see it when running the OS? and the command for extracting the files didn't work.
sorry I don't mean to be a pain, this is something totally different to what I'm used to but I definitively want to learn it.
thanks.

Don't know. Check by running "uname -r".

This is probably easily done with yum. It may be something like "yum install wireless-tools", but I can't say for sure as I don't use Fedora. I think Fedora has an add/remove software type GUI that you can use, so you might want to look for that so you can install wireless tools from the CDs.

Edit: Fedora mirrors have an RPM for wireless-tools on them (at least the one I checked does: http://ftp.ale.org/mirrors/fedora/li.../Fedora/RPMS/). Not sure how to install those, possibly "rpm -ivh filename.rpm", but check the man page for rpm ("man rpm").

What do you mean by "how can I see it when running the OS?". What happened when you tried to extract the files (presumably from the NdisWrapper archive)?

when I tried the command to extract ndiswrapper this is what it said:
[root@localhost ~]# tar zxvf ndiswrapper-version.tar.gz
tar: ndiswrapper-version.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

first I copied it from a flash drive to the desktop and I tried the command, then I thought that maybe it should be on another location so I copied it to root's home which also didn't work.

and if I want to install the other drivers that you guys gave links to; I don't know how because all I see on the folder are code documents which probably are the drivers but how would I install them from the add/remove software panel. and when I mean runnig from the OS I mean while running the Operating System which would be linux.

You need to substitute "version" with the actual version number.
