hey


You guys wont believe this, but i re-installed....and I deleted the partitions and created them back etc. and I installed the same way. I didn't do anything differently while "configuring" the linux system...and well it just booted straight into the desktop evironment after. I didn't even have to type startx!! That is so funny...lol one momemt it works...and the other? well I should keep my fingers crossed!
But thanks for everything. Could you guys direct me to some resources to start using this thing? Like some commands...lol or something to make me realise what I really have before me...and what I could do with it. I am a advanced windows user and i realised that linux is totally different. So any advice/help would be appreciated.

Great, glad you got it working.


Here are some links I use.

http://www.ss64.com/bash/

http://www.pixelbeat.org/cmdline.html

For the most part I google my way through...

I use mine more as server testing so I don't do much gui stuff.

Have fun with it!
