Hi I have recently had the good taste to take the plunge from Windows to Mandriva 2009.
So commands, terminals, etc are completely new to me. Please all instructions step by step please. I am a willing and motivated student.
I am right now completely stumped by 2 dilemmas.
I have nooo idea how to activate programs through wine or virtual box.
And I have noo idea how to get, install, etc a serialusb to activate my rogers rocket stick.

Thanks

Rogers rocket stick a device? If so most likely you will need to compile a kernel with support for that device.

You can download Virtual Box from http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

You can download a package specific to your distribution or use the generic package. In My Fedora 11 installation, the RPM package cannot be installed. So, I decided to use the generic package.

Assume that the downloaded file name is:
    VirtualBox-3.2.6-63112-Linux_x86.run


Basically, just open a console, go to the directory where you saved the file and execute:
    chmod a+x VirtualBox-3.2.6-63112-Linux_x86.run

./VirtualBox-3.2.6-63112-Linux_x86.run


It should be installed automatically in /opt/VirtualBox.[/code]
