Thumbs up Help always welcome..

Hi, Folks

I am just an O/F some 72 years young. I have been struggling with Unix/Linux/BSD since 1984. First effort was on a Decstation 3100 (Mips cpu) & Ultrix. I still never get it Right. I have used SuSE for most activities, starting with SuSE 5.7 on Floppies I recall. Biggest problem I have is that I can never seem to get my wireless devices to work with Linux. pci,usb, mini,pcmcia etc, I have some of each.

Looking forward to SuSE 10.2 on my Laptop and Desktop. I dual boot every thing..

If someone would like to guide me thru a tutorial-like session, I'd be perpetually

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

I took the liberty to split your request out of the other thread to give
it the exposure it deserves (and keep the other thread on topic).

Good luck with the 10.2 ventures.
