Introduction


Hello, everybody I'm very new to the Linux world so I'm here seeking help. It took sometime but I finally got the fedora core 5 totally downloaded and installed. Now I was going to learn the command line (long time since I did that with Windows), and well discovered there is alot of commands out there. My first problem is when ever I start typing, I get two (2) letter typed and line comes up "atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xd9 on isa0060/serio0). Ive tried to figure out what this means and why is this happening.

This sounds like you either have a non-USA standard keyboard, or more likely, the system is set up to use a different keyboard. Can you get to the KDE utility where you can change the keyboard type?
