Thanks, baldur 1, for your help. I'm using VM Ware to be safe. I tried the, 'yum install gstreamer-plugin-ugly*' command to get sound on the computor. I received the message, "could not find mirror list http://mirror.fedoraproject.org
etc", "cannot retrieve repository metadata, please verify its path and try again".
And I used the network device controller to connect to the internet, with no success. I'm a newbie and I'm serious about learning linux. However, It's clear to me, I need to do more research before I ask questions. Thanks.
