Ok so i'm new to linux and kind of lost, for the most part it's not too bad to learn it's user friendly thus far but I need two things answered.

First off i cannot stand mozilla firefox.. is there any way i can download one of the newest version of "Internet Explorer"? i have tried searching but cannot find one that supports linux =(.
So is there a way to get internet explorer?

Secondly i will be going off to school in september so i bought a new asus laptop with linux, and i cannot figure out how to set a username and password at startup for security purposes as i'll be living in a shared dorm room.
So could someone tell me how to set a username and password at startup?



Thanks a lot in advance for anyone that helps this linux newb smile.gif.

I just happen to acquire a eee pc 900 from a friend who did not realize it came with linux.
Yes it comes with xandros which is based on debian.

It seems decent so far.

Did not find anything specific on locking desktop except for this:
