Changing boot order and another question
I'm not sure if this should be in Linux Newbie (which I am) or the Mandrake forums (which I've installed)... anyhoo, here goes.
I've just installed Mandrake 10.1 and it looks the business. Its my first venture into Linux and I'm very impressed so far, to be honest I was expecting everything to be a little less 'user friendly'...
I have a boot loader that pops up and gives me the options of Linux, failsafe or windows.
The default is linux. Is there anyway to change that to default to Windows as my missus is giving me ear ache that she wants to run the computer in windows and she doesn't want to have to stand and watch it and then change to windows on the menu..
Thats the first question, the second one is this..
After installing Linux last night it didn't find my modem. I use a Fujitsu ADSL USB Modem.
How do I go about installing this so that I can get online via linux. The CD drivers that come with it are only Windows and Mac. Do I need to download drivers from a website and then burn a CD in a certain way that linux will recognise? Or is there another way of installing the modem? Basically, how does someone install something on linux...
I read somewhere about 'rpm' files or something..
Is there a noddy guide to this anywhere?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me, I know these questions may sound lame but everyone has to start somewhere right?
