im a total noob to linux networking. i have two windows98 pc's running in a simple network. id like to connect my mandrake 8.1 pc to them. i have a genius network kard lying here. whats the best way to install. simply put it in and boot pc? (never installed extra drivers before) .
anyone can help me?
I would just install it, since Mandrake 8.1 has kudzu, which should auto-detect new hardware. If that doesn't work than you will need to tell us what version genius network card you are using and then we should be able to say which module will need to be loaded.
