Hi there, my name is Brendon and I am very new to the whole Linux, Unix
and FreeBSD arena.
 
I have managed to install FreeBSD on my machine a few times already and
always seem  to experience a few recurring problems. I downloaded the
FreeBSD handbook but can't seem to open it FreeBSD using KDE 3.1 desktop
environment with Ghostviewer. (I downloaded it using my Xp machine.)
which is my first problem. Next in regards to the networking side of
things-  I can (using console assign an IP, Netmask, Broadcast and Media
type to my respective NIC -OK , but when I startx and try view the
nework or setup LISa daemon ( from the Control Centre)it always tells me
that there is no NIC found on my system. 
 
What are the options that need to be configured and where are they??? My
desired end result is to be able via the GUI browse the local network to
other Unix/Linux machines and to see my XP machine.
 
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated 
 
Brendon
