new install, problem with system configuration
i am having the weirdest problem. I'm not sure it's a real newbie problem, but I'm a noob, so here goes.
I've just installed PCLinuxOS 2007. I'm finding that many settings I change are not retained if hte system is shut down or rebooted. Each time I boot up, I have to reconfigure my internet connection, mount points, and anything that I've specified to have automatically done at boot does not happen.
I suspect that there may be a problem with my home folder, thinking that this would be where such settings might be written? On the other hand, I can read and write in my home without error, and the permissions on it look fine...
If anyone has any ideas on this, I'd love to hear them.
