After about 23 years of "micro-squash" I am returning to unix/linux.
However, I have lost my vocabulary.
I have a computer (PII 350Mhz) that was decently built up around Win 98,
but I hated the way it would crash (every other day?) and that Win 98
would do things to the system that I had no control over, nor wanted. I
installed debian/ corel linux, not knowing the problems I would face.
I love the control and speed offered by the new system, but I can't
(yet) use my USB scanner, or install WINE and other programs.
I figure that I can buy Win 98 and dual boot my system, or get a class
or tutor to help me get Linux to do what I want.
Since the later improves my value and my mind, I am opting for that.
Anybody out there up for a couple of hours of tutoring/ training. What
I'm looking for is intro into how to operate on the command line (BASH)
and what the vocabulary means in "english". After that I would like a
intro into C and see how to rebuild my kernel for USB use. I miss being
able to send photos to my family all around the country.
Thanks for you attention and help
