The one thing i hate most about IE is vbscript. I think there need to be more browsers that support it, it would be a good way to clench a bit of the market. I am sure there are other IE only things but i know of a few sites which use vbscript which means i cant visit them. I am not sure why VBscript is in use but it is a royal PITA, and a major security risk but people insist on it GARRRR.
Geko based browsers for ever

CODE
#!/bin/bash
#extract thunderbird package to /usr/thunderbird
tar zxvf thunderbird-1.0.tar.gz -C /usr/
#create a link so that the command "thunderbird" will launch the program
ln -s /usr/thunderbird/thunderbird /usr/bin/thunderbird

I put this in to a file named install-thunderbird, located in the same directory as the thunderbird tar ball
chmod'ed the file with
CODE
chmod a+x install-thunderbird

to install:
CODE
su -c "./install-thunderbird"

to run:
CODE
thunderbird

this worked for me. hope it does for you. Welcome to linux

there is no installer for thunderbird, out of the box. all you have to do to run it is cd into the thunderbird directory and then type ./thunderbird. i am currectly trying to make a shell script that will work for you
hope this helps

first thing i would do is repleace the cpu heatsink/fan and see if you can boot. if every thing runs fine then your golden if not try to swap out the cpu if everything runs then your good if not try swaping the mother board.

cd <local directory> #Target dir for putting the file
ftp -n <server><<EOF
user $USER $PASSWD
cd <remote directory>

windows also has the hardware support, but i think thats cause of the user base. the hardware companies know most people use windows so they dont worry about us in linux land, as much. ati has recently come around and started offerign support for its new cards. i personally am not a big game player, and the only real media i use is MP3's so as far as i am conserned linux kicks windows *ss

I beleive this depends on teh program. some programs will allow access to alsa, and ill have sever sounds going at once, but i know kde likes to steal control and not share it. if you are in kde you may want to go Control Center| Sound and Multimedia| Sound System and un-ticking the radio button for enable sound system. thats all i have to offer

Fedora and mandrake are neck and neck cause they both are very very easy to set up. plus with redhats books out there with the full dvd of crap for fedora 2 its no wonder people are starting with it and sticking with what they know, i for one couldn't deal with the slow speeds

I love my slackware distro. for a couple of reasons. It keeps people away from my computer even those who have a minimal experiance with Linux. I think that is due to starting in run level 3. also, it is much faster than fedora or mandrake were for me. one major problem though that i have is that there is no update program that is distributed witht eh distro, but slapt-get is ok wont upgrade major versions , or at least i cant figure out how to. but other than that i can't complain. Slack found my old ati 7500, and my onboard intel sound driver. which is more than i can say for some distros. im very pleased
