I ask so many questions, anybody would think I am a newbie :D

When I connect to the internet I have to open the Mandrake Control Panel, go to networking and then connect which open the network monitor. I leave the network monitor open so that I can disconnect afterwards.

Surely there must be an easier way? An Autodial or desktop icon or... something?

you should be able to use either KPPP or GPPP which are both included in Mandrake, which will allow you to create a desktop icon on which you can dialup and disconnect similar to windows dial up networking. If you need help finding where these are located let me know.

Couldn't find kppp so I downloaded it (kppp-1.6.25) but when I run ./configure it brings up this error:


---------------------
checking for working aclocal... found
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake... found
checking for working autoheader... found
checking for working makeinfo... missing
./configure: line 928: programs: command not found
checking for a C-Compiler...
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking for a C++-Compiler...
checking for g++... no
checking for CC... no
checking for xlC... no
checking for DCC... no
configure: error: no acceptable C++-compiler found in $PATH
---------------------

So I'm assuming I am missing a compiler. gcc and sdcc are in /usr/bin/gcc and /usr/local/bin/sdcc

I downloaded g++ (g++-2.95.3-36cl.i386.rpm), tried to install but get: g++2.95 is needed by g++-2.95.3-36cl. I gonna try and find and install 2.95... I am am following the right path :)

Bit concerned about the makeinfo missing and the command not found. Could this be another problem unrelated the the compiler issue?
