Thanks a lot for that info...that is very helpful. I am sure that I will have more questions as I learn more about linux. Thank goodness suse includes heaps of docs and howtos.

I have suse installed and it is working great. How do I get it to work with my cable connection? I have a 3com etherlink xl 3c 900b 10mb ehternet card and my cable provider is @home.
I'm sorry, I don't know how to setup this. But take a look at the SuSE support database, perhaps there is a helptext for your problem. the support database is on
Also, is it po0ssible to get suse-blinux to use the US braille translation tables?
You can select the brailletable by editing the file
There you'll find an entry for brailletable wich is called brltbl. Just set it to us and it works ;-) :
Also how does suse handle things like floppies and cdroms. I tried to mount a floppy the other day and it said that vfat and fat were both invalid file systems. I find this odd since my windows partition is a vfat filesystem and linux will let me access that with no problems.
You can mount a floppy into the directroy
The filesystem will be detected automaticly. If you want to mount a vfat formated floppy into another directory, use this syntax:
mount /dev/fd0 <directory> -t vfat -o defaults
In the file
you can setup the filesystems or partitions, wich shuld be mounted during bootup. Also there is the right place to tell the system how to handle floppies or cdroms etc. See also the manpages about mount for more informations.
