    Brand new Linux user (sorta)

    So I got my second attempt at using linux. I calfed the GUI (Read X windows) and went straight command line.
    Sheesh... do i feel dumb... anyway... I figured i would Install SSH.. did it and got it working ( with a little help from here) then remembered webmin. Downloaded insstalled and started playing ( keep in mind this is not a production box, Its and old 166 OC'd to 200 with 32 mb ram and 2 gb hd).

    So i get to work last week and decide to login ... it locked up... I fugure perl is runaway, and i cant even log into SSH.
    So i wait four hours and then shutdown -r now.
    Try to log in 10 minutes later... no response.

    Its three days before i can get to the system. I killed it

    So i re-install.. every thing...

    Now its up... and time to play... I try to configure sambe ( cuase i have a windows network running... It tells me its not there...
    so.... ftp to samba.org


    5293193 bytes received in 814 secs (6.3 Kbytes/sec) ( seems slow to me, but what do i know...

    off to play some more...
    [url]I got nothing/url]

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.

    Download... gunzip... tar...
    try ./configure

    no such command or directory...
    I actually tryed this 4 times before figuring out it wont work...

    cd source.

    run it again... now it works...

    open webmin...still not installed... hmmm maybe the dir is wrong change it in webmin ... no go

    Now i decide to READ the instructions...
