Here are the linux commands

cd means change directory
so you would type
cd /<wherever>

What, there is no CD, there are CD-----, by that I mean CD with some stuff after it, I need a simple explanation, this is so hard, and I am not even past the beginning steps of this installation, I don't want to go back to Windows, but this sound is a pain in the butt and is giving me amassive headache. Remember guys, I installed this yesterday, I don't know anything.

cd means change directory
so you would type
cd /<wherever>/<your>/<configure>/<script>/<is>
(cd /home/bosewicht/ati/)

Yes it is difficult, and it will be. Once you get a feel for how things work, you will find out it is more efficient and a lot easier to use nix over windows. You have to be willing to read the instructions, follow the instructions, and if there are none, try to figure it out using google or searching here.

I can do the cd thing now, I still don't know where the config is, I found config.log, is that anything important?

cd into the directory, and follow the instructions.
you can also type
ls /<wherever>/<your>/<configure>/<script>/<is>
to show the files in that dir

This will be in the dir the INSTALL file was in.

[ngower@home-4df244f0bb ngower]$ cd /home/ngower/Desktop/Downloads/alsa-driver-1.0.9b/configure
bash: cd: /home/ngower/Desktop/Downloads/alsa-driver-1.0.9b/configure: Not a directory

cd /home/ngower/Desktop/Downloads/alsa-driver-1.0.9b/ <press enter>

<new command>
./configure

Read the instructions, you need the . and the / before the configure.

You'll figure it out. Like I said there is a bit of a learning curve in the begining, but you just have to read the directions. I use google, man, and the search function at forums a lot. Very rarely is there a prob you are having that someone else hasn't already had and figured out. Just be patient and you'll be up and running before you know it. You will learn a lot more and a lot faster if people aren't walking you thru it step by step as well.
I would also try the Mandriva irc (maybe #mandriva)
