o.k i downloaded the emu10k1 thing, put it on cd and dropped the cd in my kde system.
I tried to install it and said to look at the "read me" file...
Well that thing might as well be written in German, because I can't understand a single thing it's talking about.
Why can't I just click an executable like in Windows?!?!?!?!
oh yeah when it loads kde it errors saying that it cant mount the sound server or something, and that it will load it in "null". huh?
also I looked in some pci hardware manager thing similar to Windows Device Manager and it recognizes both my sound card and nic, but says they are only useable in Root. AAARRRRGGGHHHH
