I am new to linux and have installed mandrake 9.0 and everytime i do something it becomes very confusing, there are so many words that i know nothing about, i downloaded a driver for tv-out and it says you dont have to configure the kernal, so what do you do? the download just sits there taking up room, i downloaded another program and there is nothing to tell me how to install it, i feel i am better then the average windows user but when it comes to linux i cant seem to get anywhere, i am starting to think you need to be an advanced user to get anywhere. Help is hard to understand cause they use words that i know nothing windows better for the average user that likes to download various things from time to time and just play around?

We're actually on in channel #linuxhelp.

I wouldn't recommend compiling your kernel right now. If it's simple loading a module, go ahead, if you need help doing specific things, post the here.

It's very hard to tell people how to do things if they're not specific as to what they want to do, or problems they encounter doing it.

Check out the Guides page on this site, there is alot of useful information.

What are the words you don't know about?
