First off, I'd like to say "Hello" to Everyone.
I'm totally new to Linux. Let's just say that Windoze and all of it's issues have been driving me borderline crazy and dying a slow death of boredom. In step LINUX. I have several machines, so I decided to kill Windoze and do a complete install on one of my older boxes. Everything went beautifully as I'm using Suse 9.3.
Being I have to "de-program" myself from Windoze, I realize things are really different but also fun as well.
I've run in to a problem. I'd like to adjust my display settings. Resolution is fine but I'd like to change from 16 bit -> 32 bit/True Color. The video card in question is an old ATI Rage 128. Their website doesn't provide anything in LINUX for it.
Second problem, I tried upgrading Firefox (Suse came with 1.0.4.) to 1.0.5. Unlike Windoze, LINUX doesn't upgrade to the previously installed directory, hence I've 2 versions of Firefox. What have I done (if anything) wrong?
Remember, I'm still in the process of "de-programming" my thinking from Windoze, so please bear with me
Thanks in advance,
