Welcome to LQ Jakablack. This is just an intro forum. If you are new with Linux, you will get the best exposure (and chance for answers) posting in the newbie forum. Along with your question, you will also want to mention the distribution and release you are using or trying to configure. For example, openSUSE 11.2. Good luck in any case.
