Well, I'm trying to access the web from behind a corporate firewall usinge Qemu & the Sugar web browser. I need to be able to configure the proxy server for the sugar web browser, if that's feasible.... :) The current wiki's don't call out exactly which activity maps to the web browser, nor how to find an activity on the redhat file structure... :P I know that this isn't a typical problem, nor one most children would face, but the basic idea of providing insight into the implementation of all activities is a nice idea. --JCF

Once you have internet connectivity working, in the web browser application, type "about:config". This allows you to set network proxies. You can open your own version of firefox or IE to see what the network proxy configuration should be. Jeff 16:21, 21 August 2007 (EDT)

expanding the image

I did the first step in the expanding image section, but when I boot into gparted, I get a kernel panic. --T.achim

Login using ssh without password

I got trouble login to XO using putty. So I change the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file to make the ssh server allow empty password

I've uncomment this

PermitEmptyPasswords no

and change to this

PermitEmptyPasswords yes
