Yeah, Jobo-

Sfeeley and Retro's suggestion for that 2.1.4 Classic sound awesome, much better than what you're currently try'n to get go'in.. Why not toss that 2.1.6 and see if you can't get that baby run'n.. It is after all- just another dwnld away.. This is most likely the one you'd want- the latest.

installation should be more or less the same as you did with 2.1.6

edit: oops didn't notice that semme gave the link.

I think if you go
menu --> setup
there will be something like keyboard/mouse wizard which will allow you to set the keyboard. It may be that you have the wrong country/keyboard setup

But, it seems even more likely that you have accidentally hit the numberlock ( numlk) key on your keyboard. Press it again you should be fine.

Make sure your Num Lock is OFF. I had the same problem when I tried running 2.14x Classic on this old notebook.
Having read your other thread I think your best option would be Wary 5.3. It runs brilliantly on my old notebook (see sig for specs).
My last piece of advice, stick with it. I made the switch to Linux only a while ago but would never go back to the mainstream.
If you have trouble burning cd's as previous correspondents have said, surely a friend, family, library or school would help out.

yes sorted key board

but what about the driver issue ?
am i right in thinking that the designer hasnt included a driver for which ever modum i have in this machine, where as the 2.1.6 distro has such a driver ?
there for would it be possible to transfered the drivers from one to other other, or are they version specific ?

there is a thread in the how to section about doing this with the sfs file from another distro and blanking off the bits you dont want, but its a bit over my head, couldnt i just load the drivers from one onto a memery stick and tranfere them to classic

has any one done something of this nature, should i post in another section of the board with this question

Open that "connect" icon on your desktop.

Next window, clk the third button- connect by network interface.

Next window, whatever the first button is, eth0 perhaps- clk it.

Next window (if you've gotten this far), test eth0.

If you get a confirmation, clk auto dhcp.

If you have internet- you're done.
