I need a guide book but pref web site, that can tell me how to get going. I need to know the very basics, as though I've never turned on a computer type idiots guide.

As I've installed mandrake 9 as a duel boot, this part possed no problems, except because I'm on bb, then I have to install some drivers. But its getting around the different termials ect.

At the moment I've managed to fathom out how to show up the information that on the driver disk I downloaded, but every time I try to access it to unzip the fille/ files it tells me that files/directory doesn't exsist. Can't go there!

I know it would be far easier to stay with ms, but now I've started I don't want to be beaten.
