Eaugh. Connection problems.
Okay, so I went through the twelve-hour download and install without significant hitches. (A few files had to be retried because my modem connection dropped a few times during the download.) My problem now is that, having restarted, I can't seem to get a working modem connection again. At first, I thought it was a password problem, as the password in pppconfig had been inexplicably overwritten, but even when I fixed that, I was able to connect, but not actually do anything with the connection. (Pings and the like just went to Mars or something.) I'm using the stable release, and I installed the first four tasks and the C task. What did I mess up, and how do I fix it?
Also, KDE was installed as part of one of the tasks. How do I get it, or indeed any window manager, to actually go, preferably at bootup? I don't particularly care for text mode...
