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.

Yeah i got it from someone else too, i'v tried running the linux recovery disk using an external dvd optical drive just like the user manual says so i could erase all of buddys stuff and start fresh. So when i reset the laptop like the manual says it says hit "esc" on startup.. so i do that and in the top corner some weird text appears at top in black background, something like "^{" or whatever.

i'm just lost completely =\.. thinkin of just gettin rid of this thing and gettin somethign with xp.. shoulda done that in first place =\.


dunno what to do anymore.. if u find a way u can set a username and pass please let me know, thanks tons for the help man =)
