heya ,

I want to put linux on an old (486 8Mram 33Mhz 170M harddisk) laptop
Can you guys give mee some good suggestions about which packages to install ?
Also about how to do a PLIP install whith R.H. 6.0  ?

**for the setup : i would like to use mailclient newsclient and linx
                       i would also like to use Xwindows if possible
thx in Advance


1. Compaq Contura Aero and PLIP

I am looking at purchasing the the above laptop
and I would like to know if anyone has found any
compatibility problems with the Aero's parallel
port and the PLIP drivers...

From what I have read about the Aero, the parallel
port is not an EPP standard parallel port.  Is this
crucial for PLIP?
