    Just got Red Hat 8.0 (question)

    Hey all,

    I'm really excited today because I got my new 40GB HD and version of Red Hat Linux 8.0. Now I can dual boot with either Windows XP or Red Hat! Horray ! In doing so with Red Hat, sense I am totally unfamilliar with the OS, I downloaded an audio driver from the site and was wondering where do I install it? Thanks to anyone in advance who can help. Also, does anyone know of some good books or websites that will help get me started on learning more about Linux? Thanks alot!

    --Peace

    The following sites will be of great help for you in the future.

    www.redhat.org
    www.freshmeat.net

    These sites will keep you busy and help you get started. Using these sites, you will learn many new sites that will help you on each individual problem that you might have. Make sure that you use the "man" pages provided on your system, since they are your most important source.

    Thanks for the tips guys, I spent all day just finding my way around and getting used to things. I hope that someday when I become the "ideal programmer" (heh heh) that I will be able to make full use of this OS. I will definatly make use of the sites and places that you all have suggested. Thanks again!
