VectorNoob but not a LinuxNoob :)
« on: September 25, 2008, 10:19:09 pm »
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 :)

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 :)

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..........:)

Cheers,
Vec

Thank you, Vec :)

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

Thanks!
