Firstly, let me start by saying, that this is not intended to be vicious in ANY way.

Secondly, let me welcome you to the wonder that is the world of linux. We're happy you are here, and we are happy to help. However, one thing.
You gotta help yourself bro - otherwise - you won't learn anything.

Do me a favor, and go to - and search for what you are looking for.
Give it a go.....and then....if you get stuck - come back - and we'll help you from there........

Moreover, please be specific in you title.

Something like "Howto configure mandrake on network" would be nice for those of perusing the forum.

Strictly speaking we don not have time to write walkthroughs (we might give a link), we're hear if and when the walkthrough fails.
