So a link that really works and something an old man like me can understand.
By the way i am using rh8.0
I'm not quite sure I understand the request,
can you pelase rephrase what you want?
2) and the biggest headache i am getting is from a 17 year old that loves to do alot of msn chat from the msn.com page. i get an error msg that ie does not support my brower and i need java, but when i look at the plugin list is says java installed. Or it one of these things that i still need windows to keep her happy?
I have never used the MSN chat from their
homepage, but would it be compatible with
the MSN messenger protocol? There's a whole
host of tools for that, gaim, kopete, ...
3) how do i share folders from windoz on my home network, me running rh8 and 2 window machines.
On the windows machine use exploder,
right click what you intend to share and
share it :} ... if you don't have the option
install the MS network sharing tools.
4) watching vid clips from a website.
No idea. Guess it depends on the format
of the clip. Plugger might be an option,
other than that, go have a look at the
plugin-page on netscape.com.
