ok, I read TrickyKid's post (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ad.php?t=45094
) and I still have some questions.
1 week of experience at any form of Linux.
Running Mandriva on a Sony Vaio.
While trying to configure my wireless card, it said I needed the firmware update and gave me an address to get it. I downloaded it, (it is a .tgz file) to my home directory.
Following Trickykid's instructions, I opened a terminal (Konsole) and typed cd ~
nothing happens, it just moves down a line.
I'm sure it is something stupid I am doing, but I can't figure out what.
Any help is appreciated.
