Unusual for it to be that many oem cd's. It may crap out eventually if it is the ram or cpu tho. I got that far once or twice. Don't be too dissappointed if it does ok.

Now that I have Red Hat installed I do have a small problem I need help with. I set up my internet through the internet connection wizard (use dls) when going to activate it it says "Can not connet to ppo" any suggestions? I do have the lan connection active, it is a 3com intergrated device on this motherboard.

I did notice when I open up mozilla it say I'm connected but can not surf the web. Also I do use a router which I tried to configure my connection with the dsl modem connected and not connected to the router.

Thanks

Actually I'm a newbie at linux.. To tell you the truth I'm stilll trying to figure out what the heck hda means and all those things in /

But heck with it , I had the same problems at boot , something not starting, eth failed , actually an older red hat version found my eth , configured it properly and then a newer version said it cannot configure it .. I tried manual , nothing ... I dunno what's wrong with that ... All I know is that I just downloaded them fromt he internet.... I sweared and stuff like that but I realized that some of my hardware is not supported... Now I bought SUSE 8.2 Prof , it works like a baby .. Somebody told me to try mandrake if I'm a newbie ... actually suse I think is the bezt ... and don't blame linux, I actually switched from Windows adv server ( which is easier to use for me ) to linux because I LOVE IT ... more possibilities , much more fun with files that u have to edit to have a manual config for the system and stuff like that... I'm new and I love it.. how can u hate it dude? I mean linux rulz these dayz!!! and they're right u might have some problems on CD's ( I dunno why if you bought them they should be all right )
Now I can't wait for Suse 9 I'm burning of desire here

i've had problems installing linux too, turns out they wre entirely due to the fact that i am unfamiliar with it. linux does lots of things differently from windows. remember you're learning something totally different, but once installed linux runs things much better. i've heard of linux machines being left on continuously as web servers for upwards of 2 years with no crash...a microsoft machine own't make it a week without having some sort of problem if left on.

it works better but it does still require you know more about how to use it than windows does...linux isn't entirely point and click yet and probably wont' be for a while.

if you can get it running it's well worth the investment of $0-$30 instead of paying $200 just to make a computer run

Samatan - you do realise that this thread had remained untouched for 6 months? It might have been better to simply start your own thread rather than revive this long dead one.
