I'm a complete Linux newbie. help...please
 
1) I was wandering how to set up a dial-up connection through Linux, distro RH9

2) Does anyone know where to get the 3D drivers for a Radeon 9800 for RH9?

3) Also, I dual boot. I have a USB keyboard. I use linux as my loader. Until I get into either OS my keyboard isn't recognized so i cant choose which OS i want to use... i was told something about a boot.ini file? Any answers to any of these questions would be most appreaciated.

Glad to join the forum.

1) the easiest way is to use kppp which is installed as part of KDE. This is a very easy to use GUI tool to set up PPP (dialup) connections.

Not sure about the other two. Perhaps the ATI website can help with 2.

Most motherboards have a option in the bios to turn usb keyboard support on, might be off.

2: check your ati home page

3: that SHOULD work no matter what, so like the guy said- its probably disabled in your bios. (or the keyboard is simply screwed)

Good luck
