Thank you for your reply, I've 2 problems with your program:
1) I can't compile it as I get many errors.
2) It's written in C++ and you use direct access to glx libraries, and I
need absolutely to use GLUT.

How to copy files from CD to HD in Linux? HELP! HELP ME I'M STUCK IN THE 1980S WITH LINUX! Referring to the below message, can somebody please tell me how to
copy files, either using the 'emelfm' file manager icon under the GUI
in Damn Small Linux (D.S.L.) or using some command in the console mode
(which i'm not sure how to even get to, but I think it's called
BASH?!), from the CD-ROM (once mounted--which I finally figured out)
to any directory?
And what directory holds which file (.MAKE file?) for the ethernet
software driver? Or should I depend on PPPoEconf (a program in
D.S.L.) to autorecognize the ethernet card? The new ethernet card
says to install the driver...

Learning Linux -- Help! Hi, I was wondering if someone could give me suggestions on how to start
learning the basics of Linux / networking with Linux. I have taken a
very basic Master's course on IP Sec, but for the most part I am a
hardware person up the Advanced Software Creek without a paddle --
chosen to be a paddler because I'm a top rate swimmer (???). If I could
learn Linux in a week, I would be a very happy engineer.
Questions I'd need answered include: What's an LNP, why do people use
it? What is Linux and why is it so good?
And then I'd actually need to learn Linux.

First Linux is HUGE in Server world, and many people like to prototype

solutions - on their Linux laptops.
The classic and most common solution even for smaller businesses is
LAMP which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. There are a

help connecting to linux nfs server I can connect to a linux nfs server via the command line, but cannot
connect via finder->go->connect to server
I entered the nfs://server/export into the dialog and get a response that

I purposely entered a bogus server to see what would happen and I
get the same error.
If I use the command line, I can mount it, but then there is no desktop
icon. I would be satisfied if I could get just the icon so I could use the
finder on the files on this server.
Oh, to get it to connect I need to use the -P option (secure port) as the
