    Hello and thank you for reading and/or helping me

    Ive installed mandriva 2007 on my friend pc and wow it worked no hardware issues!
    BUT
    firefox times out and will bring a website back about once every five goes
    and updating cant connect to the ftp repos or whatever they are.
    yes ive gone and done the easyurpmi and still no change

    i can however connect via konkoar(i know wrong spelling)
    What gives?
    im not behind a proxy, Im on adsl (slow at the moment but adsl none the less)

    Ive ajusted the timeout settings to longer(no difference)
    Im also wondering where i can get updates to the public keys(rpg_pubkey things)

    thanks heaps
    sometimes i wish linux would work like i rave about it.

    though my mate does like it and weve got wobbly windows!! lol
    little bit of a pain getting cds to work if theyve got programs on them sometimes. amarok is awsome!
