Newb In
*sigh* I've installed Linux 2 days ago... upon installing it, about the only thing I knew was that Linux was free, open source, and something called "root" was very important. I have NO IDEA what I'm doing otherwise. And a list of problems. I'm using SuSE 9.0 Pro.
I have some cheap Mitsuko mouse, that's scroll button won't work now.
An AMD Athlon XP 2700,
120gig HDD,
Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card,
512mb RAM,
Nvidia Nforce 2 MoBo,
Creative Labs SB Live EMU101k sound card,
with an Nforce2 Ethernet Controller.


It took me forever to get the drivers and stuff working for the Ethernet Controller. And now whenever I restart my computer I have to go in the shell and type "modprobe nvnet" and then reconfigure the ethernet card before it works. So that's a real problem for me. I installed sound card drivers but I'm getting a nasty hissing noise on out of my speakers. My graphics card is chugging every once in a while. I mean, I need alot of help, I'm REALLY DUMB..... I really AM too.

Any suggestions whatsoever would be alot of help to me. I mean any whatsoever, I have NO IDEA what I'm doing.
