Know IBM Aptiva 712 Problem?

Post by Christopher Louis Bal » Tue, 13 Oct 1998 04:00:00

I'm thinking of putting RH5.1 on my old IBM Aptiva 712 (Model 2144-83P),
a Pentium 60 with 16MB RAM. I have a few questions:

I plan on adding a new 1.0GB Seagate ST-51080A AT/IDE for using Linux
(since the existing 540MB drive is nearly full).

1) Are there any know problems with the Aptiva 712 or the Seagate?

The video chip (an S3) is on the motherboard.

2) Will this pose a problem for X-Windows?

3) If I use PartitionMagic 4.0 or 3.0 to set up the Seagate drive for
the RH install, should I expect any problems?
