I'm reposting this, because I think that it's been pushed down far enough
that people aren't seeing it. Basically, I've got my internal wireless card
setup as my eth-pcmcia-0 device. Someone said something about how it should
be bridged to eth1 and then I can use it. It doesn't seem to be doing that.
Can anyone help?

Speaking of time, please check yours. Your email showed up with a date of

Yes, I'm a time traveler you see, I'm only in this time segment now to check
on a few stock investments I had in mind...thanx for the tip Stan..

Hello fellow Susers. I want to install Suse 8.2 on an Abit IC7-G with an
intel 875 chipset.Is the hardware supported by this version of the Suse
distro? All the HDD's to be installed along with it are SATA so I
presume tehre may be a problem installing them? Previous experience with
sata disks in linux had them working very slowly and I could no possibly
install the OS on them. Any experiences that a fellow user may have had
with this kind of motherboard/chipset would be welcome.
I've got a Samba fileserver working pretty well, but it would be nice if I
could have a web interface that allowed end-users to search for documents on
Sort of like a google interface to the fileserver.
The trouble is that a lot of the docs are in word, acrobat, etc.
Does anyone know an open source search engine that has converters? I've looked
at a couple of commercial search engines that would do the job, but I found the
prices shockingly high. (i.e. $20K for a 100,000 document index)

I have been fooling around with scrollong mice and SuSE 8.2 and the KDE
control center handles them well. But my favorite 'pointing device' is a
Logitech Marble Mouse (funny name for a track ball, I know) This is the
symetrical 9ball in the middle) trackball w/ 2 buttons. They have a new modle
that has an additional 2 small switches just for up and down scrolling.
I don't know how this works in Linux, X and KDE; it is not a wheel, so may be
implimented in the Windows driver.
Has anyone of you gotten this unit to work on our beloved SuSE?
Thanks to ALL ................ PeterB

I tried to install SuSE8.2 on my Dell Laptop(8100 Inspiron with SuSE8.1)

I have finally configured my system to let me use a Linux mail client
from my Windows PC.
Hopefully my messages will now get threaded properly. :-)
I'm using evolution.
Does that have a way to group messages into threads? Or is the purpose
of threading just in the archives?

I have cygwin/XFree86 installed to give me a X desktop.
Then I ssh over to my Linux box in the lab and run evolution with the

Seems to be working so far, but I don't have any resize ability on the
Hopefully I can figure out how to do that shortly.
