Red Hat 9 Themes


Hi people, I've not long installed Linux Red Hat 9 on my machine ( 4hrs 53 mins) to be exact, and I have seen a new menu I like the look of in the theme section, but I have had a look around for themes for Red Hat 9 which currently runs gnome but can not find any. Can someone please tell me a site where i can get free themes and please tell me how to install them please. Thanks in advance....

what do pings and traceroutes tell you? Can you ping a site or IP address for more than 2 minutes? Is kppp for a PPPoE DSL connection? If so, do you connect through a router that interfaces with your dsl modem?

perhaps it is a driver issue with your modem. Do you have access to a broadband connection anywhere? If so, you could see if you get the same problem there.
