I have a 2007 version of PCLinuxOS and can get the CD distro going, but lack drivers and cannot get on-line (wifi) Linksys or Encore Ennu 802.11 G in order to queue Pkg Mgr and get up-dates.
I also have a copy of the rescue disk that comes w/ http://www.sysresccd.org
This allows me to access a terminal, but I am only beginning to use bash shell lang.
I have referred to youtube pics on Debian Linux & Ubuntu.
I have to use community college and city/county library systems, so I have to contend with their fire walls and regulations.
I have tried to create bootable memory sticks and DVD's/CD's of .iso files, but cannot seem to get anything to "take".
I'd like to get to GUI, as it makes more sense, but I need to learn bash, as well.
Any helpful keywords, suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
