Thanks for the link, fatmac.

I saved the link to the free book, and even emailed it to meself so I can pick up the read on the other machine.

Everything I can learn about Linux will get me one step closer to being free from the Mega System's spell...

Thank you, Jesus!

I don't know if highpockets is around to see this, but it may help someone else.

Not only do you have to set CD Boot ahead of Hard Drive Boot in the BIOS, but you have to make the CD burn image bootable. Not to plug a particular product, I have used Infrarecorder - a free download - successfully 9 out of 10 times. It has a "Write Image" selection which makes the CD bootable.

Good Luck!

Hi John and davec60,

I am also unable to use dialup with PPP Dialer. Running dsl 4.11 from live cd, I got a failure message saying, "script error" or something like that. I haven't tried the pppconfig download yet, but I guess I will need to burn another cd to include it...

So davec60, did you get your modem to work?

Any help would be much appreciated.

texbrew (Cheers!)
