Installed -Now what?


New to Linux. Dual booting XP with Mepis 6.5. I don't know where to begin setting up Mepis. Are there any post-install beginners guides recommended? This is really new to me and I would like to know what to configure first, second, etc.

Also, The Synaptic update is daunting. That is its own topic (should I upgrade everything?)

Any recommendation is appreciated.

Thx

you always keep you system completely updated, what do you mean by setting up everything, like hardware you mean?

Basically, I dont even know where to begin configuring other than the cosmetics. Anything I should test, tweak, adjust, install, uninstall now that mepis is up and running?
