    First, welcome to Ubuntu.

    The Beginner Team is here to guide you, help you become familiar with a your new OS and the Ubuntu community.

    Well, to some extent, if you are active on the forums you are a part of the team. You are welcome to send me a join request, but please include as much specific information as possible with your request.

    To those who have submitted a join request, please be patient. The Beginners Team is just starting and there is a strong general interest from within the Ubuntu community. It is my intent to build a knowledgeable and stable team. I anticipate the team will be both large and diverse, but it will take time to coordinate and develop.

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    Question Re: The Beginner Team has started

    I just downloaded Ubuntu last week. I need to get to servers that recongnize only Internet Explorer. I tried to download wine from their web site but their first instruction is to open a terminal window. How do I open a terminal window, what is a terminal window. Also, do you just copy and paste their codes into the "terminal window"?

    There is a plugin for Firefox called User Agent Switcher that lets you choose which browser it tells the web sites they are talking to. It won't help with malformed HTML or ActiveX, but it will help with a lot of sites that check for IE and then refusse to talk to you. In FF, go Tools->Add-ons and then get extensions (bottom right).

    To open a terminal, it's under Accessories->Terminal. Yes, you can copy/paste the commands which is much more reliable than re-typing them.

    Welcome to Ubuntu everybody.

    I love this idea.

    I am such a newbie at this but I soooo wanna get involved
    You said "don't give up"
    and "chase your dreams".
    But, the more time we spent talking big,
    the less time we have to get things done...

    Dude:

    Don't do that just yet, try:

    www.tatanka.com.br/

    he has IE 5, 5.5, and 6.0 up and running. You won't need Wine. You should have a MS 98 or better license. His work is really cool!

    Terminal is the like the old Dos command , if you installed Unbuntu, then go Kmenu, which is like your windows Start button, lower left corner of your screen, click on it and menu will open up, move the mouse over on System, and a sub menu will open, you will see some thing called Konsole, click on it and your terminal will open up. you can type help for help. best of luck.
