Okay, I finally got XP and RH8 dual booting on a single HD.
I also managed to get the modem installed and can browse web.
I did the automatic install of RH8 and chose to set it up as a personal workstation with only the recommended components.
The overall speed of Mozilla sucks compared to IE6!
I tried downloading Linux version of Acrobat from Adobe.com using RH8. (So I can read the manuals)
The speed was .4KB/sec which would take 5 hours.
Switched to back XP and tried the same file; its speed was 2.15KB/sec.
Which would take 1HR 15Min. I can live with that.
I would like to try Mozilla Firebird someone said it is a whole lot faster.
I have never installed any additional programs in RH8.
Once I download the file what do I do with it?
Will it install automatically when I click on it?
Where are the RH8 manuals? I have the five installation disks; are they on them somewhere? Did they get installed to my HD?
I don't really know what to look for.
I know I can find them online but I have trouble using the files once they are downloaded. There are three versions of each manual to choose from.
