Alright, I've got a dualboot Win98/Redhat setup going. I'm a 3rd year (sorta..
) college student majoring in computer science, yet I have not clue how to do anything under Linux or Unix (which is relevant to some of my questions).
I got Linux for multiple reasons, one being that I'm taking Intro to Operating Systems which is taught on the campus Unix mainframe. I'm hoping
that I can use Linux to do most of my programming for the class, as I live 15 minutes from school and would like to just run up there for the final night's debugging and testing.
So, in Winbloze I use VisualC 6, which I purchased. What do I use under Redhat, how do I get it, etc? I figured out emacs (sorta), and cc/gcc, but couldn't get my first program to even compile. I'm sure it has to do with the includes, but I can't find the right directory to run from to begin with. Any help?
Part of the problem is I can't get my Diamond Supramax PCI 56k modem to work at all, so I have to reboot into Winbloze to get online and ask for help. Any help for getting that working?
Another question is how do I access my Windows partition? 2 simple reasons: one, I could, if necessary, save html help stuff from online and then access it from Linux to walk through whatever ; and 2, I want to get to my mp3 collection. Which leads to asking what player I need and where do I get it?
From what little I've read here and there, this has something to do with a mount and/or lilo (??). Any help?
Basically, any and all help is greatly appreciated, and make it as detailed as possible as I'll probably end up printing this and having to work through it on my own.
