Oooh. A Vector person! I just installed Vector (5.0_rc1 or rc2 SOHO) for a friend. It was sort of a test while we waited for his replacement XP disks to come, but he liked it so much he wants to keep it. Now I'm stuck trying to figure all this out well enough so he doesn't switch off of linux again. This guy knows next to nothing about computers, so it has to work the first time around.
The things I'm trying to find out are:
1. Is there a simple package manager GUI program that I can have him fire up whenever he needs a program?
2. Why, oh why, was OpenOffice not installed? Instead it came with an installer file, which I did use - but I'm not sure if I did it correctly. For instance, it might only work in one user account. I'm not use to working with an "installer" program on linux. Usually it's by hand or with a package manager.
And... welcome to the forums. In the nick of time no less
