Ok downloaded it and can see all the files but new to this so like what do i have to do to set it up to actually run it.
Just unpack it to your home directory ( i.e. /home/<username>/msn
, change to that directory and run ./amsn
. That's it. You can also make a menu entry to do this as well.
I looked at the faq but new newbie here but know more today then yesterday.also how do you turn off the screensaver in mandrake 9.1 and or change it
Right click on the desktop, and choose Configure Desktop
. The screensaver and wallpaper options are there.
how good is the built in firewall in mandrake and also for linux what is a good virus package.
I use Guarddog for my firewall. It's availabe here
. Just make sure you read the help file in full. It provides a tutorial for getting a firewall up and running. After you do get it running, check it out at the Shields-Up
link at http://www.grc.com
. As for an anti-virus package, you can try f-prot
. Try googling for it.
