Just installed Mandrake 7.2 (dual boot w/ Windows 98) and everything went wonderfully... except for the following:

1. I use JunoWeb (9.95/mo, no ads) for access, and when I called they said they aren't compatable with Linux. So, unless anyone knows a way to pry the necessary info out of them (and if it'd even work if I did), I need to find a new ISP. Does anyone out there know of one in Columbus, OH? (614)

2. My printer (a cheap p.o.s. HP Officejet 710) does not seem to like Linux very much... it just prints blank pages when i run the test (even though there's a driver built into Linux for it), and once, it even started printing blanks for no apparent reason. Any advice?

I'm a total Linux newbie and would appreciate any help given.

Thanks for responding!

I don't think you said it had to be free, so:
Roadrunner is in Columbus.
It is pretty much plug and play now with Linux. They got rid of all of the login stuff, just setup your NIC for dhcp, and your on.
