problem: online on winxp and linux red hat
Hello everybody !
Recently I have posted quite a few problems here, because I am trying to make a considerable effort to change to linux. I recently sucessfully installed red hat 9.0 and winxp dual boot but have run into quite a few problems...
This is a brief overview of what I did, created 10GB partition in bios and installed winxp(ntfs) on it, then from xp created a FAT32 (5GB) partition and another 5GB(NTFS) partition. Then I booted from red hat CD and installed red hat on remaining 8.6GB. It works fine... but here are the problems I face......
Problem 1 : I cannot see the FAT32 5GB partition from my linux OS, but I can see it feom winxp, can anyone help me on this ???
Problem 2: I have a LAN based internet connection which requires me to log on using a ISP client giving my username and password. The first time I looged on winxp I ran this client and was able to log on, I forgot to log out and restarted my computer and started linux and entered all the information in the network card like IP, DNS, gateway.
SURPRISINGLY It didn't even ask me to download the client and I was able to go online just by giving this information. PROBLEM: NOW I CANNOT GO ONLINE ON WinXP.....?????
I tried to do everything deactivate the card on linux and trying to log on in winxp. I am able to log on in XP but I cannot go online ......... internet expllorer just gives up it doesn't even try connect to the website......
Problem 3: I was trying to install the the internet client on linux as well, the instruction say to type this command ./install.sh from root mode, how to I log on to root mode, I have entered the root password and then tried this but the terminal tells me that I should be in root mode to run this
PLEASE HELP !!!!!!!
