    OK, got the full Suse Linux 7.2 on an extra computer,,
    its goddamed confusin if your used to Window$

    just like Redhat3 i couldnt figure out how to shutdown
    if i logout i goes back to the login
    in redhat u coulnt get the gui working on a 166mhz/64mb/1.9GB
    but was able to get the gui working in Suse on 73mhz/128mb/15GB
    in redhat ctrl/alt/del shuts down all the processes after logout but it would just go to rebooting....
    in suse you can logout but it goes to the graphic login screen,
    ctrl/alt/del just starts the reboot, if i turn it off it forces this linux verison
    of the scandisk, i forgot what its called exactly but it runs thru the drive with a % progress....

    anybody know how and where to configure the firewall in linux??

    any suggestions or ideas from linux geeks?

    thats just how unix based systems work, if you login as say root or whatever and get to the prompt youre in the basic command line shell before you load up the pretty looking window manager.

    i havent fucked with that shit in years (i ran slack with the 2.0.30 kernal heh...redhat 5.2...etc)...so im a little rusty.

    Search for some ebooks on basic linux use. O'reilly publishes some good ones. That's the only good way to learn Linux. As far as the firewall is concerned. IPChains is a good one that I can think of off the top of my head.

    ...In all honesty, you're asking the wrong group of people about this.

    lindows is on the market?
    i thought ms was holding it up in court.
    how is it kilo? i was rather interested in it once i heard about it.

    i hear you can get a new lindows based system for like 1/3 the cost of a windows based system.

    Whoa. Linux is crazy. I tired to work with it once and I just couldn’t get it. I’m so conditioned to work with widows its ridiculous. Although I do hear that linux is easier to use. It’s just different from what we are used to.
