Editing Configuration Files -- Please Help - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi If I want to change settings for modems, NIC cards, ports, etc what configuration file(s) do I need to edit? Also, all of those drivers loading at starup, which file controls them? I have SuSe 8.2 Pro version of Linux. In Windows it is System, Win, autoexec, and config.sys. I am too new to Linux to know where these files are. Any assistance would be appreciated....

    Default Editing Configuration Files -- Please Help

    Hi

    If I want to change settings for modems, NIC cards, ports, etc what
    configuration file(s) do I need to edit?

    Also, all of those drivers loading at starup, which file controls them?

    I have SuSe 8.2 Pro version of Linux.

    In Windows it is System, Win, autoexec, and config.sys.

    I am too new to Linux to know where these files are.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    The /etc directory contains these 'configuration files'.

    For "config.sys" functionality, check out the /etc/inittab file, and the
    files in /etc/rc.d

    For "autoexec.bat" functionality, the same files, /plus/ /etc/profile, and
    the per-user .profile (/home/<username>/.profile) files.

    What you really want to do then is read the doc on your distro.
    Also read "man hier"

    I would recommend a beginners book first.

    Maybe you should not ask "hey, how is this box working?", just one thing
    at a time.
