From high-speed to dial-up...question
I've obviously succumbed to insanity because in a week or two I'm going to give up my 3MB/s internet connection at my mother's and haul my computer outside city limits for dialup.

I'm running Fedora Core 1.... and have absoultely no clue as to what is involved in getting a linux computer to play nice on dialup. Since I have ethernet I haven't put much brainpower to use when it comes to things like this.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what to do? Is there a specific ISP that I should check out.... a certain modem....how-to URL?

-Off to get my head examined...
OK, this is finally starting to bother me. This is what my GMplayer looks like. This can't be right. obviously something is configured wrong somewhere. it makes it really hard for me to use the program. Anyone have a fix for this or a better program to use? I haven't figured out how to do things that I like in Gmplayer, like play songs at random and the like.

My GMplayer . . . youch!
Ok, so here's the deal. all the rest is sorted.
I have a server hosting multiple domains, and it's all working nicely.
Running postfix for yon e-mail.
The only issue I'm having is that of mapping users to domains for sending.
As it is, they have a virtual username for e-mail, looking like user.domain that they use to get their mail at user@domain.xxx.
How can I set it up so that when they send mail it appends the proper domain, instead of the fully qualified name of the server? (aka user@boxname.mydomain.net)

Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.

WiFi Woes
Dear esteemed Linux users, I need your help!

I have configured my 802.11b PCMCIA card in Mandrake 9.2 to the point that I have it listed was wlan0 in ifconfig and iwconfig. I can run a iwlist scan and locate a number of Hot spots / Access points in my apartment complex. So I think I’m good when it comes to have the card configured correctly. I currently have a wireless routed connect to my cable modem and Mandrake 10.0 desktop.

What I want to do it connect to my router via the WiFi card in the laptop, along with other various networks in public locations (local coffee house and friends house) with minimal work on my end. I believe that all I need to do if configure a dhcpd.conf file to assign the IP’s and DNS for the laptop. I’ve searched the hell out of Google for the last few days and I’m not finding what a straightforward answer on this.

My questions to you are….

1) Am I wrong that dhcpd.conf is all that’s left to do?
2) If I do need to configure dhcpd.conf to access random access points, how does one configure dhcpd.conf to do this “on the fly”? Can anyone supply a generic dhcpd.conf file or point me to an example on how to do this?
3) Is there any GUI (KDE) front-ends that will allow you to, say double-click on a selected access point to connect to them?

Any help you can offer would be fantastic!

Quick Lilo question -
Right now, I'm running Slackware 10 (on hda1) with Lilo as the bootloader.
But I just installed Damnsmall Linux on hda3, and I'm not sure what exactly I need to put in the lilo.conf file.
Here is what it looks like now:
