I think it's working!! but should I use Xvesa, or Xfbdev? I'm pretty sure I should use the latter (frame buffering) but will it be good with my mouse? I have a little bud type thing in the center of my keyboard.

Many of the older laptops prefer framebuffering. Try Xfbdev, if it doesn't work, then we can change to Xvesa from the command line.

The mouse *probably* has a standard interface. It should work with either.

Thank you so much, seriously.. All of you, but specifically you, dping, you helped the most. I do still need help with the dialup configuration though.

Linux has you...

Have you looked through the "DSLpanel" on the desktop?
I have never set up dialup in dsl, so not much help there.

Have fun!

Well, never mind. I didn't figure it out. I'll keep trying, i'll go to the DSL section and ask a couple questions, maybe I'll dig something up.
