    Linux Installation problems


    Hi all,

    Now I have been able to install linux 7.2 on my PC.
    But I face the following problems.

    1. With boot time I don't see window OS option, the only option which appear
    is a line "Red Hat linux (2.4.7-10).
    What have I missed during installation and how I can solve this problem.

    2. My keyboard doesn't match what I type e.g. if I want to type "/", instead
    "&" appears. Where and how to correct keyboard settings?

    3. I am using DHCP server for internet connection and during "Network configuration"
    process I clicked the check boxes "Configure using DHCP" and "Activate on
    boot".
    It does not work either. How to solve this.

    These are the problems I am facing right now, more may apprea on the way.

    I am sorry if these questions sound you very basic.

    thanks
    regards

    Hi again,

    I forgot one more question.
    If because of some reason I need to uninstall Linux and go back to my previous
    WinXP OS, how to do that?

    regards

    You need to edit /etc/lilo.conf and add the partition that windows is
    installed on, run lilo, and reboot. I think RH will have a graphical
    tool to configure this, but I'm not sure, since I'm not that familiar
    with RH.

    Sounds like your keymap is wrong. Again, I'm not exactly sure how to
    change this, but now that you know what to look for, RH's site might
    help you out.

    Depends on what kind of internet connection you have.
    Are you using dial-up, cable, DSL, or are you tapped into a permanent
    network?
