I have been cruising around the forum site checking out anything that sparks an interest and I can see how helpful everyone seems to be. I look forward to checking in. Had my first mild problem tonight, booted up this old pIII, boot went fine and then opened firefox, PAGE NOT FOUND. For some reason didn't have a connection. Checked the wires for my lan all seemed to be hooked up properly. Then checked to see if the mac that shares it's network connection could go online, yes it could. So what could be the problem? The icon in the bottom right said limited connection -1? So now what? Well I've never been shy about pushing buttons. Has caused me plenty of late nights fixing. So start looking around. Some opening and playing later I came across Vector Control Center. Open it and there was networking. One trip through and here I am.
Linux is not new to me, I have been messing with Fedora for about a year now, so some of the commands etc. are familiar. I still feel like a newbie though. I look forward to talking to everyone here to try and learn.
