N00b...I jus dont understand
I downloaded all three disks for installation of Agnula. I have run disk one. which seemed logical to do, and went through all the polarva or installing it, then i hit this console thing where it asks me to install extra packages, my question to you is;
What the hell do i do???
Once i click on these things that are listed (i dont even know what they are) it asks for a username and password, installs it and then leaves me with this DOS like screen...I can type what i want, but i cant get into the main OS of linux...surely this isnt rite...for once i appreciate the setup of WinXP, that was nice and easy
