blink.gif Hi all I have just managed to to install mandrake on my Vaio, A few glitches are stopping me from realy enjoying my lovely disto.
1. Yep you guessed the modem...
it's a "CXT AC-Link Modem" is this a winmodem? how do I use it to connect to the internet?

2. My keyboard, it's a laptop and the mapping is all over the place so I have to continualy hold down the featuers key to type correctly.

3. And the video card an Ati Mobility radeon 9200 dosn't seem to be supported, and I cant down load the driver becuase you guessed it .... the modem.

Should I give up????

You didn't say which vaio model you have ... but search for it on google like this

vaio model_no linux

Substitute your model number for model_no ...

Here are a couple good links I found:
