i have a chance of getting a very cheap sony vaio *ultra thin* notebook.
has anyone here tried this hardware with linux before? i am particularly
concerned about starting the system off in the first place, since the
vaio has an external floppy disk and cd-rom. i am not sure if i can boot
my os iso image from the cd-rom or not to start the install. i'm also
weary of potential hardware/device drivers incompatibilities. this will
be a linux-only system; no partitions to windoze or other os's.
i'm not new to linux, just new to vaios. i've been using compaq
notebooks + linux for a couple of years with success.
thx in advnc,
