Hi:)  I'm 58, a career broadcast technician (mainly in graphics) and I love experimenting with Linuxand various distros.  Until tonight, I've been a Gnome/Ubuntu-derivative user....but nowI have VL5.9.1 installed and am impressed by its speed Smiley

I'm using a Compaq Presario 2170us with 512Mb, 40 GigHD and a Linksys WPC54G v7 PCMCIA card.

I'm dual-booting with XP, which is what I'm on right now because I have yet to get wireless networking to work in Vector.....but I'll post elsewhere about that because I have two other issues, as well.

....but I just wanted to say HI from OHIO Smiley

Welcome aboard...........just a quick note since I notice you are using 5.9.1........we made a boo boo and there is no ndiswrapper included with 5.9.1 so if you need that for wireless we have a package available in our repo to fix that. Other wise enjoy the great community here they are all anxious to help you get addicted to VL..........Smiley

Cheers,
Vec

Thank you, Vec Smiley

One quick question....since my Vector's wireless is not working yet, how can I get the package using XP?

Thanks!
