Hello guys, Thanks for the help so far.
I installed the mandrake 10 and all is looking sweet so far.
next step now is trying to get the network to receive internet on another pc.
I want to leave the winxp on that one for now till I get completely comfortable with the linux I have on this system.
could anyone guide me on how to set mandrake 10 and winxp to work on the network.
I tried the usual options of internet connection sharing, but thats as far as I went
