I did it. I finally got my netgear fa311 card to work on linux. This has been taking me forever to do. Several days ago I totally wiped out windows and began anew with RedHat 7.0. Everything worked great except for my ethernet card. But I finally did it with a lot of help from Frank Carver, thanks alot. Anyways, the look and feel is slightly different than windows. I expect that this is typical at first. am I right?
Well done! The look and feel is indeed different to Windows. More than that, there is a lot of choice as to how different it is. Which window manager are you using at the moment; with a stock RedHat I guess it's KDE?
I'm actually using Gnome. I'ts been pretty good thus far. I haven't tried to configure it differently. The most amazing thing I've discovered thus far, is that when somebody comes out with something exclusively for Windows, then someone else makes the unix/linux version. I've downloaded the jsdk1.3 but I thought I would wait for the weekend to install it. Is it difficult? Is there a classpath variable? Anyways thanks for all your help. Sean
