Thanks alot for the feedback, it helps alot. There are so many questions I have concerning Linux(being new and all), but was wondering, is there any possible way to configure KDE to automatically load driver files when it loads? Everytime I startx , I have to reinstall my NIC driver and use ifconfig eth0 up just to connect to the internet. Thanks!

basically... when I first boot up and load the KDE, I'm not connected to the internet. I installed my NIC driver last night and after each reboot..I have to type commands into the terminal in order to get a connection. I could probably get away with only using the "ifconfig eth0 up" command by itself, but I just don't see why I should have to enable every device I want to use after each reboot. Like I said, I'm a n00b when it comes to Linux so I'm still learning the ropes..slowly.
