Names Neal Thrailkill been on the list for a while "looking" at the
posts but thought I would write in and ask a couple of question. I have
a new job and I am trying to get ahead and become familiar with Red Hat
( is Red Hat Enterprise Linux also pronounced like RAIL?) I picked
CentOS. I have been in the tech field since 92 and even worked on Unix
for a short time (Xenix and AT&T III, IV) which were old at the
time when I worked on them. I am a jack of all trades seen windows NT
to Novell to UNIX. Did more server work on the first 65% of my career.
The last part of my current career was mostly PC support. Found a
company thought it was the next RED HAT / Microsoft ( to eventually
take off like them). Talk about a train wreck ( anybody want to read a
soap opera and HOW to not run a company
if you click on the "tags" you will get more wonderful detail also)
Sorry I digress I have installed Linux ( half heartedly) of and on for
about 7 years still have RED Hat server box version 2?? for $150?? My
money well spent on a box ( looked nice on the shelf I must admit).
I have a HP Pavilion ZE4200 with centOS on it ( Version 5 )
Network card wireless WPC54GS VER 2.1 i am trying to get up and
running. I do a search on CENTOS and WPC54GS and not very much comes
up. If I search RED Hat more shows. This is ok right ?? There
virtually the same???
How do you unzip a ZIP file EXE in Linux to get to the windows driver ???
What books do you recommend for a semi newbie for Red Hat and the Linux
Thanks for the presentation today enjoyed it. Thanks to the guys who I
talked to to get some other info from at the meeting.
