Do you have an option in your bios to disable onboard audio? When you say the onboard audio doesn't work, do you mean it doesn't work at all, or it just doesn't work in Suse? Just need a little more information. wink.gif

Is this a dual boot system, and if so, did you install lilo in the mbr? Did you buy the premade disks, or did you burn them from some iso's, and if so, did you verify the che checksums? It kinda sounds like you got a bad burn. Btw, if you burned them, what program did you use? I know this is alot of questions, just trying to a better grasp on the problem. biggrin.gif

I don't know for sure if this will work, but you can give it a try. First, in console type "nslookup", then type "www.google.com". If you can't get the ip adress stated earlier, open a new console or just type exitand type (I think you have to be root) '/etc/rc.d/init.d/named start'. Hopefully that will take care of it. Do you know it bind is installed? The only way I know of checking is to type 'whereis bind'. That's all the ideas I have, hope something works out for you. wink.gif

For the ip, in console type "ip -s addr" and see what your ip is set too. Then log into your router and see what the dchp is set to (what ip's are allowed). You should also have a dchp table. Look and see what comps are on it. If yours is, the problem is not with your comp setup. If it's a dns problem, I can't help you there. I'm still fairly new to linux. Hope I helped some.

Not really a pro here, but did you set an ip adress after install? If your running it through a router with nat, and you set an ip outside those set thru the router, it won't allow you access. Also, did you set up any type of firewall? That can also block access. Like I said, not a linux pro, but those would be my first guesses to check. Hope that helps. smile.gif

I have an interesting dilema: I have a printer (HP 2110 USB) connected to a computer with Xp/mdk (1). There's another computer(2) on the network with just xp. Under xp, the printer is shared with no problem, but under mdk, I don't know how to give the other computer 2 access. I've already set-up the priter to work with mdk, and so far I've been able to acess the other computer2 shared files (although I haven't been able to let the other computer 2 access the files on computer 1 through mdk, but that's another problem). Can anyone help me out with this. I have a feeling it's really simple, but right now I'm stumped. unsure.gif

Thank You

I believe the ntfs partiton should already be mounted, you just need a shorcut to get into it ( if running GUI). Right click on desktop, choose new, hard disk. When the properties box pops up, click the device tab. Scroll through and you should see something like /mnt/windows. I had problems accessing it at first, just needed to change permissions. Just know that writing to NTFS is still experimental (I think?), but reading isn't a problem.

Thanks for the reply. With the burner, that's the wierd thing. Even if I hit the eject button on the burner, it won't eject. It's like something is keeping the disc spinning, so it won't eject. At first on thought it was the burner, but I have no problems with it in xp. I'll try the command line when it happens again and see if that works. If not, it'll just be something small to get used to. smile.gif
Thank You

I'm not a pro, and I'm also using MDK, so some things might be a little different. I don't know about the first one, but I think the programs are usually installed in /usr/bin. If you have some type of search utility, use that. Or in a console type "whereis mozilla". As for the mouse, again I think things are a little different, but if you have some kind of control center, you can change the speed there. On mdk the default speed was really low too. Hope this helps some. smile.gif

Oops, forgot to mention RAM. 512 MB PC 2700, so I should be good there too.

I'm running Mandrake on x86 with very little problems. As for chipset, you should be fine as long as it's been around for a little while. But I don't know if there will be support for HT in linux any time soon (then again there's only a couple of programs that support it now). But I'm fairly new to Linux, so there may be some things I don't know. wink.gif In any case, you should be fine, but I would still do a search on google for problems with that board/cpu and 'nix.

I've only been using linux for a couple of weeks, but I'm really starting to like most of it. One of my main problems is lag when running Mozilla and severe lag when running Tuxracer. My machine isn't a beast, but it's by no means slow. Is there some kind of settings I'm missing (like how do you make sure DMA is enabled?). My second problem is my burner, it shows up a scsi, which it's not. I also can't remove a cd unless I'm trying to install something from disc or restrarting (this is not a problem with my regular cd rom, which is set as the burner's slave). Often times I can't install rpms from the second or third disk without restarting first. Here's my specs.:

Pc chips M920lr board (gonna change soon)
Celeron 1.8
Maxtor Fireball 4500rpm (needs to change soon)
DRT 24x10x40
52x Cd rom
GeForce2 MX400 64mb
Soundblaster Live! 5.1
XP Home/MDK 9.1 Dual-boot

I like mandrake, just a little aggrivating when I can't figure something out for myself (like I can usually do with Win.). wink.gif
Thank You

I've been doing some searching, and I found out that mdk's snd driver doesn't support my car (Soundblaster Live! 5.1). I found the as10k1 driver, but I can't figure out how to install it. So far I've installed rpms and Adobe Acrobat (it had an actuall install script), but no matter what I try, it's just not working. I've only had mdk installed for a couple of days, so I'm fairly new to command line. I've tried searching through google, but still don't come up with anything. Any body want to help this struggling newbie out. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the reply. I actually just figured out a couple of hours ago. smile.gif I used Partition Magic and it seemed to have no problems moving those files at the end of the drive. Now I just have to figure out why I get tons of package errors while installing. sad.gif

Thank You

I'm really new to linux, in fact my only exposure is Knoppix. But I decided I want an actual installation and I've read Mandrake is the easiest to install/use, which is what I want for now. I want to have a dual boot with xp, which is already installed using ntfs. Mandrake has a ntfs resizer, but xp won't give up the space. I defrag'd my drive but not everything moved to the front of the disk.

I have a 20gig drive, and xp takes about 7gigs, and most of that is at the front of the drive. But for whatever reason xp leaves a small chunk of files near the end of the drive that won't move. When I run the mdk installer, and run ntfsresizer, I can only get about 800 mbs free space for the new partition. I thought about using Partition Magic, but I don't think It can do anything about the files either. On a side note, does mdk take care of the boot loader, or is there something else I have to do?

Sorry about the long post. If anyone can help me out with this and maybe even give me some tips on the install, that would be great. XP is probably the last M$ product I'm going to use, so I want to try other OS's. smile.gif

Thanks
