    I need help with a Point Linux 2.2 Mate problem, please!


    I took a look at the DVD and tried to install it. However I was notified that I had to hook up to the internet to install it. I set up a new wired connection and put in my ISP information, but I could not find anything to initiate the connection. Can anyone help me with this please? Thanks!

    That's interesting, I installed the minimal on my laptop when it didn't have a connection then updated it when I got my USB wireless adapter just two months ago.

    As soon as I plugged the wireless in the Minimal install picked it right up.

    What wireless do you have? May be something that needs a particular driver.

    Are you still on dial up lucky?

    If so, this Debian based vwdial tutorial may be of help

    If you can't find an answer here you might try the Point Linux forum.

    Peter, the originator of Point Linux hangs out on the sight quite a bit. If he can't help you no one can.
