    Welcome to the forums Lito de Belen!

    I'm sorry, you seem to have had a bit of a wait before you got a reply to your first post.
    Do you have any sound at all? For example, Mandriva (not Mandrake by the way, that's oooold) should play a little ditty when you start a new session. Do you get this? If so, it could be a simple codec problem. Linux rarely ships with every codec you need for rights reasons. Try downloading and installing VLC - this comes complete with most of the codecs and is a really nifty little media player.

    Hello,

    Glad you've got your sound to work. Now, about your network problem, Linux works well on a network and there is no trouble connecting a Linux and a Windows PC together. You will need to configure an IP address for the two computers and then set them up so that they can 'see' each other. The process should be straightforward enough, but I suggest you start a new thread if you have any difficulties.
