Newbie needs advice
I just installed Mandrake 7.0 on my computer, and I ran into the common problem - the version that I have is not compatible with the hardware that I am using (with regards to network and sound). Fortunately, I find that Nvidia has come out with the tar file that *could* possibly be used....but alas, I have kernal 2.14....
So, I managed to install Linux Kernel 2.4.0 (after about 16 hours....Linux was not designed for the newbie huh? ) however I am finding that there are some files that appear to be missing from my system. In particualar, I am missing mii.h and himem.h . There are two others that make couldn't find, but I found them located in a different directory altogether.
My question.....am I wasting my time with this particular version (Mandrake 7.0) or can the Nvidia drivers be installed successfuly?
Thanks for any help you can offer me.
