To install the icons, you do the same as the themes. You have to watch it though b/c some are only available if you use Compiz or Beryl. I don't know of any tutorials on that site.

Forgive me if I'm wrong here, as I've only got little experience with Ubuntu, but couldn't you get FireFox from the repositories seeing as it's very popular and pretty much a standard for Linux these days?

In the command line try <sudo apt-get install firefox>
Or you could just browse the repositories with the graphical interface for it.

Anyway, I think you should give a summary of how the repositories themselves work in your guide.

Not all Linux distros use the same repositories (some don't even have repositories), so one would have to give distro specific info. on those things. Guides can be found all over the place (usually on the official site of each distro).
As for Ubuntu, https://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/deskt...e/C/index.html (that's for Dapper, but Edgy is similar). Still, I don't think FF is available in the normal repos, so you either have to download it and install it yourself, or install Automatix http://www.getautomatix.com/index.ph...id=15&Itemid=1 which lets you automatically install the latest version (FF2.0).

Here are some good links.

http://tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/index.html - a book called Introduction to Linux
http://linuxcommand.org/ - learn how to use the command line
http://wiki.linuxquestions.org - general wiki about linux

It's kind of good to read up on stuff like this because when I installed Fedora for the first time, I had linux, and it was cool, but I had no idea what was going on. Also, most distributions have good documentation on their sites.

I have some friends who use linux. I might start using it too.
post #18 of 18
Ok...

I have Fedora 6. I've installed the OS on 3 rigs with no problems. But now the 4th rig has run into a snag. The last instructions before re-boot were: Fedora 6 installed successfully. Asks to have install disks removed and then reboot.

Then I get GRUB>
and nothing more.
What am I suppose to do?? I know that GRUB is a bootloader, but this time it is not loading anything. I also know it's waiting for instructions of some kind.

Where do I look or how do I look to make sure the hard drive had the OS installed?

What do I need to type at the GRUB> to get things going and loading properly??

Please be specific AND show it step by step in your reply. I'm not a Linux follower and need major help and/or training... I do not know the Linux commands either...

Any help would be greatly appreciated, :-)
