I just got a laptop in the mail yesterday and it has linux on it.. when I went to turn it on it went through all the data pages. But then it gives me a prompt that says [root@localhost/]# and I have no idea what im supposed to type to get it to start up.. I will send the puter back if I have to but im hoping someone might know what I should do. Please help! and ty for your time. smile.gif

linpus and ubuntu are preinstalled on many laptops.
