    redhat 9 verizon dsl setup

    I just installed redhat9 with a dual boot with winxp. My verizon dsl will not work under redhat9 even though it works fine in winxp. I have tried various things that I found on the internet and on a search of this site and none of them helped. I just started using linux 2 days ago so I am not sure of all the terms. I have no router, no network, and no other computer uses this connection. Can you guys tell me what to do in newbie terms so I can understand and hopefully get this thing running?

    That is pretty much the only thing stopping me from getting rid of windows all together. (The other thing is a p2p program. Doea linux have any good ones?)

    I figured it out. I went into network configurations and typed in the dns info I found in the help files on the verizon site and..... BAM! I was on the internet.

    openFT and its plugins,
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...group_id=34618

    For Kazaa plugins
    http://developer.berlios.de/project/...p?group_id=809

    use Apollon if you use KDE for your desktop
    http://apollon.sourceforge.net/files.html

    Can do Gnutella openFT and Kazaa at the same time

    or you can use bitorrent?

    sweet!
    Its better to regret something you have done than to regret something you havent done :P

    Another good one would be:

    XNap
    http://xnap.sourceforge.net/

    This program can do OpenNap, giFT, LimeWire, etc.... rolled into one.

    Re:redhat 9 verizon dsl setup

    I know this is going to make me sound very stupid but... how do I install xnap? I downloaded the rpm package from their website. I clicked it and it worked. Now, I am not sure if it is installed or not. I cant find it. What do I need to do?

    Re:redhat 9 verizon dsl setup

    To install the rpm version "rpm -i xnap-2.5r2-1.noarch.rpm"

    I suggest using the Beta 3.x .zip file though. It's better then 2.5. Just unzip it, cd into the directory, and use "java -jar xnap.jar" to start it. You can read the README on instructions on how to install it incase you want to do that.

    Re:redhat 9 verizon dsl setup

    I put that comand in and it says that that package is already installed. How do I start the program?

    Re:redhat 9 verizon dsl setup

    Well, I've never tried the rpm version, so I'm going to take a stab in the dark here.

    java -jar xnap
    or
    xnap

    Try those commands from CLI.

    Re:redhat 9 verizon dsl setup

    Neither of those worked. I am not sure what to do. Is every program that you install in linux like this? Isn't their a way to put a link in the start menu or something? Is their someway to search?

    Re:redhat 9 verizon dsl setup

    Oh I forgot to mention that you need Java installed on the machine to use it. It doesn't come standard with any distro.

    http://192.18.97.252/ECom/EComTicket...x-i586-rpm.bin

    Also when you tell us that something doesn't work, it would be nice if you can post the output of the commands into the CLI unless nothing happens at all.

    For example, if you didn't have java, and type in java then it would say command not found or something, these little bits of information help us out alot.
