I feel too stunned to answer.
Message: I worked out how to format hdb with 3 partitons.
I installed Suse Linux.
I'm online and have a working printer.
Now, I don't get it! I've been messing with Linux for a couple of hours. How do you install stuff from cd to my hdb2 or should software go in to hdb1?
All the help pages say type "$ ***** then $ ***** then $ *****" but where do you type these words (what ever they are, I've forgotten due to frustration)? There was something about tbz being installed/expanded into the folder that I had downloaded the package from (on one help site), but the software is on cd so that will fail.
How do you download stuff (updates)?
