sethkberent, remember, at the network layer IP addresses are not used01:58
sethkberent, both IP addresses map to the same MAC, since they are the same card.01:59

I have two questions, fairly simple in nature.  The first is, is there a command when using apt-get to search for a package?  For example in Fedora you would use 'yum search <package name>'.  Second question is when you install a package via apt-get and using a GDM (I'm using KDE) shouldn't it automatically put an item in the appropriate menu slot?  I did an apt-get for firefox but it never put anything in the internet slot on 06:27

xzkYou guys ever had a problem with your mouse where it will double click everything? I may have dropped it or something... I'm not sure.. but it always double clicks.. well I should say Most of the time it does bc I've kind of learned how to make it single click sometimes.. but its extemely frustrating06:47
sproingietime to buy a new mouse06:48
freakabcdin synaptic, how do i check which repo a package comes from?06:48
freakabcdright-click properties?06:48

ferossLarken: there's probably a way to start the boot cd without X but I think if the boot CD doesn't detect your screen it's going to be a bit of a hassle to get it setup. It's probably some issue with the video card.06:48
freakabcdit doesn;t show the actual repo the package is from06:48
