hello from linux!

now working with wireless networking. after faffing around with drivers for fedora core for ooh, about 4 months, everything is now working after 'upgrading' to mandriva 2006 (horrible name).

does this mean curtains for windows?

the mandriva install gave me some problems in that X wouldn't work at first - it started and then aborted with error message "could not open default font 'fixed'". i fixed it by commenting out the line
Fontpath "unix/:7100"
in the /etc/X11/XF86config file. that is to say, i replaced it with
#Fontpath "unix/:7100"

my experience with Linux is that usually at least one randomly selected piece of hardware doesn't work from scratch. this is the first time i have been able to fix the problem working from the command line (using vi!).
once you can open a web browser and get to Google, troubleshooting anything else becomes much easier.
