I am totally new to linux, Ive just installed my third distro ever (Previously I had redhat, but Ive had a look at lycoris and suse 9 , and suse 9 is the one that won me over) and I would like to ask a couple of things.
I have my linux test box at work, where we are using an NT box (MS proxy server) to get out to the internet.
Do any of you know of a "complete idiots guide" to making suse work via this proxy server? First of all NTLM authentication is on, and there is no opportunity to change it, so I need to find some way to authenticate with it.
From what Ive found while searching on the net, some combination or stand-a-lone of Samba and/or Squid is needed. (If I understand isnt Samba mainly for file and printer sharing though?).
Squid seems to be the way I need to go and if I also understood properly, I need to set it up to use our current proxy as parent, but Im not sure how to do this. Ive looked at the squid.conf file and at the moment Im a bit lost. Incidently during the setup, I made sure to install both Samba and squid, so they are both on my system.
If any of you can give me an idiots guide, or point one out to me, along the lines of, "go there", "type this", "next do this", I'd really appreciate it.
Secondly with the installation of the nvidia drivers Im a little confused, I went to NVidias site, pulled down the the drivers (I32 something), dropped into text mode, ran sh nvidia-long-filename-whatever.run and it fell over at the "kernel stage" informing me that it needed files compiled specifically for my kernel. When I went to the nvidia site they had files, but only for suse 8.2. Is there any way I can get these files to work on Suse 9????
Sorry if the answers to these questions are obvious, but as I said after years in a windows environment linux is something totally new. I am computer literate btw so you dont need to explain to me what a mouse is etc
Thanks in advance for any help.
