Be forewarned, I'm a Linux newbie..
2 Main things, I hope some of you can help me out with.
I am about the purchase a new computer.. I am looking at the P2 450
processor.. Maybe jump up to the P3-450 for the new instruction set,
but I am not sure if it is worth the extra $50...
But, the question I have is what kind of components should I get..
I am thinking about the
-ATI Rage Fury 32 Meg video card...
-SoundBlaster Live.. (I have heard all sorts of bad stuff about this
and linux.. What are some other comparable cards.)
-56k Modem v90.. (Does this matter as long as it is not a win-modem?)
-17.2 gig western digital 7200 rpm..
i have heard stuff about linux not liking HD's too big... is it an easy
thing to get around? i wanted to dual boot windows and linux so I
wasn't sure where to go with that.
I have seen Red Hat 6 for nearly $80..
I don't want to spend that much, if it is simply a matter of
downloadign an ISO and burning it.. My question was what about the
other 2 cds included in the boxed set.. what is on them? the source
finally, i found some postscript files on the redhat website which is
supposedly the installation guide.. what other documentation comes
with the boxed set which might be worth that $80??
thanks a lot fellas.
