Hello all

As you can probably guess, my name is Joe, and I'm an Engineer. Actually, I'm still a student, but I graduate in April with hopes of moving north to continue my education.

Anyways, I am somewhat of a computer Geek (built all of my computers to date, starting when I was 13) and I have recently chosen to install Mandrake 9.2 on my Latitude CP (Pentium 233MHz, 92mb ram, 2GB HD) and until recently, I have only used Windows and DOS. I have recently made the switch over to eventually use my Linux Laptop as a firewall.

I registered here because a lot of people have recommended this site to me, and also because I have plenty of questions regarding linux considering I am very new to this OS (and as some would say, way of life).

Now that I have introduced myself, I would like to solve a problem I am having with my laptop/distro/xircom PCMCIA card. I don't know if my problems is hardware/laptop/distrobution so which forum should I try?
