blink.gif Unfortunately im part of the dumb down generation of windows users so im pretty new to Linux. I just installed Linux Mandrake 8.1 on my computer. Ive actually had it for a while but was unsuccesfull at my first installation attempt. Ive finally got in installed successfully using the KDE desktop theme on the Xwindows.
I have a:
- 128MB Radeon Pro 9600 video card (ATI has instructions but im wondering if thers another way)
- Logitec Cordless keyboard and mouse (it works but all the special keys dont work)

Im having trouble installing the drivers for these pieces of hardware. If anyone has any information it would be very helpful.
