Talking !WONDERING!... something


how can i customize my linux mandrake machine the way i want it (ie faster start up, hardcore--wont stall or crash frequently, desktop arrangement, and ways to get around the os using the console)

samba is being a butt, i am trying to get it running but dont know where to start, and i am recompiling wine (again) to see if this error dont come up again,...if it does then...i have an Xp pro disk in the other room, ill just format and install it :-) lol

ummm.. customizing can always be done.. that depends on you and how you want to customize. something like that, your going to want to read up on linux, try looking around the forums for some tips and other problems people have to help you in customizing your own distro. also you can check out mandrake's site, i am sure they have tips and good info there in tweaking your distro on how you want to customize it.
