Question Question on Linare


I recently bought a computer from Wal-Mart, it is a Linare Desktop, AMD Sempron 2200, 40 GB HDD & 128 MB RAM with Linare Linux 2.0. The computer isnít detecting my monitor I have and the monitor I have is from my old Emachine 366 computer/w windows 98 build into it, and I canít find a brand name for it. Do you know what I can list the monitor it is under? Or how I can tell what kind of monitor I have?

Iím also having trouble connecting through the internet, I was trying to connect through my modem, but it also keeps giving me an error message. I was trying to connect using Juno (since I am a member), but Iím having trouble also.

Also Iím having trouble opening up a program through my floppy disk drive without it giving me a pop up saying ďOpen With optionĒ on the computer (I donít know how to go about that way). Iím also having trouble opening up a program to download through the CD-ROM drive without giving me an error message, saying itís not mounted or unmounted. Usually I don't have any problem with windows, but I am new to Linare, and never used it before. Is there anything you can help me with?

Iím thinking of buying a new monitor to try a see if thatís part of the problem, but I donít know if it is. Would I need a new monitor for the problems I am having or is "normal"?

Right now Iím using the computer where I work, since I canít get online at home.

I would appreciate if you could get back to me a.s.a.p.

as your title even says, this is a question, and not an introduction... moved.
