MT92,

Have you been through the quick start guide?

http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/LinuxCN...ng_Started.pdf

In particular, chapters 5-6-7 are very informative. I ran it for a while but switched back to Mach3 because of familiarity. If you have some more specific questions, I'd be happy to try to help out.

Tom
