Okay - Tell me is there any sort of text editor in the command center where you can load and edit files? Haven't used Mandrake for quite a while and the annoying bit is that most of this needs to be done out of the desktop....

And tell me have you ever started a text editor other than the suggested ones when you were

root@localhost or a user in the black space looking like DOS?

I have Kwrite, which looks and acts like Windows works or word.

Other than that, I have never installed anything with Mandrake. I've tried before with Thiz-Linux.

And are you able to access Kwrite when you are root@localhost or a regular user in the black space looking like DOS?

With Thiz-Linux, a person would extract the file, which is like unzipping the file and then you would run the commands inside the xterminal. Even with that being said. not everything wold load/install correctly.

I almost gave up on Linux, then someone turned me onto Mandrake.
