What do you want to do? Which (type of) programs will you need. Give some more info otherwise you'll get a lot of info you don't need or no info at all.

I have this site bookmarked for bash commands (command line, don't know if you want to use that?) http://www.ss64.com/bash/
They won't live though unless you try out and I think you best search for suse tutorials or in the official docs

Even for using linux there is stuff you'll never do. So for example you might want to use your PC only as desktop or as server or something. Just as you won't use all programs or all commands. Best thing is find a command line tutorial if you want to know the command line. Google is your friend.

For other documentation have a look at this: http://www.tldp.org/

hi there,

bad language.

i would not say "shity windows".
like linux, there are pros and cons with windows.
your question was to general. where you should start?
emacs is not included in suse if you have the 9.1 personal version.
like darkleaf pointed, a good start would be the command line.
as he also said, you should try to precise better what you want.
with that people will be able to help.

regards

I have a Motorola SurfBoard, and mine was detected automatically in SuSE as well as Mandrake. If you network ethernet connection is set up right, the "line out" should work.
