I'm determined to get this Linux thing working (!), but I could really use some help with this simple question:
if I download drivers from the 'net to a floppy (using Windoze, as my Redhat 7.0 with Gnome gui is not connected to the Internet) and then insert that disk, how do they get installed? If I open the floppy icon, it just shows the file. Likewise, if I want to install something from a CD, how, exactly do I do it? Should I be in the shell environment? (Specifically, I'm talking about printer, scanner, digital camera drivers and some word processing tools)
Any help is immensely appreciated.
