Hi, This is my first post on the internet from Linux. I have been dreaming about accessing internet from Linux for two years, and today it became true. Before going deeper with Linux, I have the following queries. 1. How do I know if the firewall is running? I don't see any icon related to firewall near the clock (taskbar?). 2. How do I know if auto update of the OS is enabled? I am on DataOne bandwidth limited plan. I am using Mandriva 2006.
