Thanx for everyones input. I have attempted to install linux for the 5th time. However it is still not working. I am trying to do this without much docmumentation. So I think I should just breakdown and buy a good book on the subject. as i have no experience in linux whatever. I suspect that after some reading what seems confusing at this time will actually render itself quite easy. Will write back and let you know how it goes.

Best Regards, CHOW

well i managed to get linux installed. the bootit NG boot manager did not seem to be working so i deleted all partitions (patitions created with bootit NG must be managed with bootit NG so i had to delete everything again) and i will try LILO. in the meantime, i am going to find a site which gives me a list of basic linux command syntax. Thanx for all the help.

Best Regards, CHOW

Thanx aaa
I have consulted this guide. and followed the instructions for setting up the dialer. but when i called my isp for nameserver ip and info concerning authentification protocalls. The service rep could tell me the nameserver ip, but not the authentification protocall. So I am going to try to find an it guy at sbc who can tell me which protocalls i must use. my isp is sbcglobal.net, if anyone here is familiar with the protocalls in question, please state them here. Thanx.

Best regards, CHOW
