well the problem that i was having is that it couldn't read the media from the 2nd cd, and the 2nd cd always failed the mediacheck regardless of where i downloaded it from. i may not need the 2nd cd tho, you could be right in that, just not all that familiar with configuring linux from the console without some sort of gui(like windows i guess) to configure such things. All i'm trying to do is get it up and running and configured(however it is that i need to not really sure what i need to do
), so that i can run a MUD off of it and be able to access said MUD from my network. only thing i know for sure that i would need is the C type development packages and anything else that would be required for me to achieve thee above goal. Sorry for being vague, like i said i'm a wee bit new to this and all.
.....got it to install even using the non cooperative 2nd cd but only if i didn't install the xwindows package which i guess isn't all that important, but sure would of made my job easier i imagine
