I am having two main problems thus far; the problem with my laptop, which i wont look into for awhile and creating an aol account on my desktop. There are other local isp i can use through dial-up access but the system does not read my modem under the hardware search agent.
I will troubleshoot that by simply testing another modem and seeing of fedora can read the new one
if i can get some internet access on that desktop then i will spend a bit more time familiaizing myself with the system, due to the fact that i ftp alot onto my website and to a unix system at our school.
I will also check up on the laptop when i get it back, im letting a family member use it while she checks up on family in New Jersey.
