  1. Just a quick update! For some reason my usb adapter still has not arrived, I suppose it could be due to the holiday season but it's taking way too long whatever the reason. In other news, I'm having a lot of fun with Mint on my PC at home. So far I managed to get a ventrilo server up and running, which my friends and I use everyday. Next project is to get a minecraft server running on it
  2. Ok, I'm going to order an out-of-box linux compatible dongle, an Asus USB-N13 802.11n/g/b. Should get here in a day or two, I'll update as soon as I get it. In the mean time, I'm putting Mint on my spare gaming rig to mess around on.
  3. Ok, so I installed this version of Linux on a new VB: http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=88 and it seems to be working fine. I did find the driver I need on there, thanks for the link man. The driver is here http://wiki.debian.org/zd1211rw#Installation I tried to install it with the commands listed there, but to no avail. I'm fairly certain I am doing something completely wrong haha. The command line is a bit scarier than I thought.
  4. The homepage I need to set is www.yorhealth.com, and the network name is YOR Health. The wireless card is an Airlink AWLL3025 usb. I found this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardwareSupportComponentsWirelessNetworkCardsAirlink101#USB which has the driver for a AWLL3026, which I'm hoping will work. On Friday's, the PC is not in use so I can take it down and see if Debian detects the card or that driver works. I will update after doing so. Thanks again for all the info you can give me, you guys rock.
  5. Hybrid I can't thank you enough man. That worked like a charm. The only thing I am having trouble with is that it wont save the homepage I want. During boot I hit TAB to get to that awful white on white screen, hit the back arrow until I get to the homepage line and change it to the one I want. It then loads up with the correct homepage but does not save the settings when rebooted. Also, the PC this is going on uses a wireless connection, do you think there will be any issues with the driver for the wifi card? Thanks again for making everything easy to understand.
  6. After a lot of research I found one I really like, http://webconverger.com/. I got it running in Mint by mounting the ISO as a virtual CD drive. It works, but for various reasons, I need to install it to the hard drive of the PC that will be used as a kiosk. I cam across this page http://webconverger.org/usb/ but I am a bit confused by the directions. I would be very appreciative if anyone could walk me through the steps. You guys have been awesome so far, my first foray into the world of Linux has been confusing but pretty fun actually. I really do appreciate your time, thanks and I look forw
  7. Yeah we only want it to be able to browse the web, and that's it. I got Chromium installed, works great. Now is there a way to lock down the OS so Chromium is the only thing people can access? I am doing this all in Oracle VM before I put it on the PC btw.
  8. Hello, everyone, I am trying to get started with Linux and this seemed like a good place to get some help without being ridiculed haha. I actually have never used linux before, so I am a super noob, but I have been reading about it and it is definitely something I want to get into. My supervisor at work wants to set up a kiosk PC for visitors to use here at our office. After reading about all the options it seems a Linux based kiosk would best suit our needs, but I have no idea to go about setting it up. I was reading about it on this site: http://kiosk.mozdev.org/ but I got a littl
