Question Please help


I left a thread called Multiple Operating Systems. Now I am new to this forum, and I don't know if I am even doing this right, so I will try again. There have been a few people read my post, but no response yet. Maybe I'm impatient, at least my wife thinks so. Anyway here is what I wrote before:Hello, I have Windows Me, on one partition. I have Windows 2000 on another partition which I am running VMware. On VMware I installed RedHat 7.2, and also installed Mandrake 8.2. I can switch from either version while both are running. Now I am new to Linux, but I really want to learn about it, so I thought that the best way was to try out both flavors of the many that are out there. Now my question is how do I connect to the Net? I have AOL right now which I hate, but my kids love it (why I don't know). I also have DSL through them, but I am looking into a Static Connection so that I have the same IP address each time. Is there anywhere I can learn about Linux, and set up my internet through the two Linux flavors I have installed? I would greatly appreciate any response from anyone out there. Thank You very much..........workerfly
Now if I am doing this wrong someone please let me know. Also I must add that VMware works awesome, with no problems as of yet. I really need help learning about linux. Please help me. Thank You..........workerfly

At times you may never get an answer and your wife is right, your being impatient.
