    Vicious circle

    Hi dear Sharey,

    1.) First complete setting up your connection to the Internet.

    2.) Give us a feedback, if you where able to successfully finish that task.

    3.) Once connected, you have to configure your computer, and configure your prefered/favored browser (for example "Firefox" for Linux).

    Do you allready have a operation system pre-installed?

    If not, you will have to install one with a LiveCD.

    In you other thread, I remember you saying, that you had not a opration system yet. So it is a vicious circle.

    You will have to buy a LiveCD in a shop, or get one from inside of a Linx-magazine, to get started.

    So, right now you will be connected, but you cannot use the internet without a operation system, either installed, or used from a bootable LiveCD.

    As I stated in your other thread: I think "Gnome" is not a ideal distro for newbies.

    I recommend "SimplyMEPIS"/Linux.


    Kind regards,
    Alexnder
