Newbie Mandrake 9.1 user here
Hey guyz found my way through Google here and i'm about to join the Linux frenzie. I have a question about device drivers.
Currently dual-booting w/ W98 & W2K on 2 separate hard drives. I installed a 3rd HDD connected via a PCI ata controller card. I have my 3 Mandrake CDs all ready 2 go and i even started the installation process to make sure Mandrake would recognize my 3rd hard drive.
After i install the OS, i presume i'll have to install all my device drivers ready to go. I have my nvidia video card driver burned on a CD already but as for the other drivers - heck i have no clue.
Will i need to find/download/& install the following?
(FYI: on a Dell 4100)
1) Intel 815e chipset
2) Santa cruz sound card
3) Connexant GVC modem 56K
4) Siemans Speedstream NIC
5) USB cable modem - RCA brand
6) USB HP deskjet printer - 952C
I know nothing (almost next to nil) about Linux. I sure would appreciate all the help i can get before i start on this venture - thanks all.
