Linux is a beautiful Desktop if you know what you're doing.
I used Slack as my very first distro and never switched back.
Infact, I'm still using the same disks! XD

If you need to contact me, you can do it here, on my forums at http://savetheneighbor.6.forumer.com, or on AIM as MylesCLin

Edit:
You posted as I did.
What is your net problem? Unable to connect? What ISP do you use and what are the symtoms?

do you have a network interface card in your computer or is it connecting through a USB connection?

as root run in an xterm/console:

Code:
lspci | more
look for anything that says network or ethernet and post the chipset identifier string (it'll be something like blah blah ethernet card or whatever).
You may need nvidia's platform drivers from thier website (it (the nvidia ethernet chipset) was recently reverse engineered and open sourced so it possibly might be in the kernel source tree somewhere).

Maybe, it is best to just copy the whole output of lspci in a post. if it does not fit into an xterm or konsole just do:

$ cd ~
$ su
$ lspci > lspcioutput

this way there will be a file called 'lspcioutput' in your home directory wich contains the output of lspci, you can just open that and copy the text from your text editor. You can use any filename you want of course (just replace lspcioutput w/smth else).
btw. this is dumping of the output to a file is called 'redirection' and can be very usefull!

grtz,
elluva

post your lspci output ( do as the above post by elluva) and let's see what you have. Do you know what version of Red Hat you are running by chance?

you can get a konsole by pressing ALT-F2 and then typing 'konsole' (that k is no spelling error) and pressing [enter]

Then issue the commands I gave you in the box you'll get.

Maybe it isn't a bad idea to buy some introduction to linux book (a pocket or smth), just to get the basics, it can save you a lot of time.

I agree with alluva. If you have to post here just to open an xterm, it's gonna take you forever to get comfortable with Linux.

I would suggest a trip to your local book store and find a book on linux that comes with a CD. Just about any distro will do. Make sure the cd has a 2.6 kernel, if you're not sure check out the web site for that distro.

Also, usually when you get to a login prompt with RedHat it will say which version you are using. <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<F2> will get you to a login screen, <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<F7> will get you back to X.

Good Luck.

Actually, what might be better is to find a friend who knows linux. That will save you the money and the time. Plus, you'll have some good fun staying up late. And once you got everything set up, you can start using the net as your resource. It's really fun! (and cheap!)
