RedHat 8.0 questions: attn subservant please
I have breifly tried Suse 7.1 which worked well for me, except couldn't configure scanner; Red Hat 8.0 where had problems with printer incompatibility.
Have had Mandrake 9.0 installed via ftp by a work colleague. Made a mistake and wrongly entered ISP as hostname, and despite lots of help unable to fix this, consequently Gnome and KDE don't work properly.
I have a spare ofl drive 2Gb and considering installing RedHat 8.0 to that to see if I can do better. The bootloader has a floppy option. How do I configure bootloader during install to make sure I don't mess up current booting options. Have already messed up MBR when attempting RedHat install before.
Also - linux info generally says I ought to be able to print with Epson Stylus Colour 600 using CUPs, gimp-print and foomatic. Yet I couln't configure printer in RH 8.0.
Any help/ideas really appreciated. Beginning to give up on Linux. A real newbies1
Thanks for any help possible
