I am happy! I managed to burn DSL's iso image ver 2.2RC1 and make it work for me. I learned how to boot the live CD with the right resolution [ <F3> and then follow the instructions...] and managed to get a pretty sight of DSL's desktop.
Being such a stud, I managed to connect to my ISP [ Yes, I am writing this using my live DSL CD... ] and even showed a seasoned Linux user how to do it at another forum I visit quite frequently.
So, what am I bee-atching about? The windows of some apps like Firefox, Dillo, etc. are freaking HUGE! I can't see the upper part of the window with the minimize, maximize, and close buttons. My wild guess is that I am not specifying the right setttings for xvesa
Can somebody point me towards a fantastic way to have reasonably sized windows for my applications?
I am a gratefull DSL n00b who is slowly becoming more and more enamoured with this elegant Linux distro. I also use Fedora Core 4 for my day to day important things like web-browsing, playing chess over internet, playing backgammon, emailing, and some light word processing... Why am I trying to learn DSL? Because I want to learn about Linux and Debian and this looked like a fantastic place to start.
EDIT: Problem solved... Just <CTRL>+<ALT>+<BACKSPACE> to switch over to a command prompt. Then type to enter the right settings for the screen. Once that's done Things may not look fine here but right-click with the mouse and do:
System > xvesa
Choose the setting that best looks in your screen (Mine was 800x600x16).
Wow! I learned a couple of things today: Connect to the Internet with DSL live CD and fix the resolution of my screen. I am proud of myself!
