Can you relist the problems you are having, I cannot really tell which ones you haven't figured out, and which ones you have from the replies given so far...

That will help alot for me and others who are semi-lost at this point

Cool

K....

Have reinstalled a cd program, can now play audio cd's..
I still cannot configure my soundcard, but it seems to work...i think this was after i put
"options sb io=0x220 irq=6 dma=2 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330"
in modules.conf.
will not being able to configure soundcard have a detrimental effect?...(I want to set this box up as an audio box...)

Can now halt...thx.
can use files with spaces exept with & in them.
Still have to use control centre to connect to web...is this normal?
any info on GTK welcomed.(is dependancies for software i try to install)

You should be able to connect to the web without control center. Have you configured your network yet? What are you doing in control center that allows you to connect to the web?

Also, I think I gave you the wrong information about the soundblaster options and I apologize for that. Last night I checked my modules.conf file and it doesn't have the options in it. The options are in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file. I uncommented the line that says:

/sbin/modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=6 dma=2 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330

The options are passed at the modprobe stage. All you should have as far as sound is concerned in your /etc/modules.conf file is:

alias sound-slot-0 sb

Sorry for the misinformation earlier. Hopefully this will straighten things out for you.

In mandrake control:
-network & internet
connections:
gives an internet access bar...
type:modem
interfacepp0
status:not connected (connect?)

When i click on (connect?)i get the network monitoring window...in says it is trying to connect, then opens another window saying :
the system doesn't appear to be connected to the internet.
Try to reconfigure your system

Then connects.
status:connected (disconnect?)

disconnection works.
so, it works, but not quite right!
i configured my internet connection on installation.

try launching a program called kppp (this should work to connect to the internet). configure it, and then use it as a "dialer".

As for gtk, open up your terminal, and as root type:
urpmi gtk

It should go through and download/install all the necessary files to install gtk.

Cool

gtk is a graphical tool in linux. Many apps (alot of gnome apps especially) use it to draw their graphical front ends. You do need it installed to run those apps in their gui form. gtk stands for Graphical Took Kit, if that helps any.

And as for kppp, go to your K menu --- Run --- And type kppp if nothing comes up, then open up a terminal, and as root type:
urpmi kppp

Cool

Hmmm....try to run wvdial in a terminal. Here is a WvDial Configuration/Support page. Just click through the links as it provides excellent step by step set up instructions.

Hopefully this will get you connected. Keep us posted!

It should be installed on your system already. Go to that link I provided and it will walk you right through everything. It's very well written and very simple. You should have no problems. If you do, let us know.
