I am new to Linux (in fact, I havn't use it at all), and I plan
to devoet my summer to install/learning it. But before I do that, I
would appreciate some confirmations about my hardware:
Mitsumi 4x IDE cd-rom (slave on secondary IDE channel)
WD 540 hd (master on primary IDE channel)
ATI win-turbo (MACH 64 w 2mg VRAM) vl
Promise 2300+ EIDE controller card
SoundBlaster AWE32 sound card
ASUS Intel dx2-66 green motherboard
I need to know whether these hardwares are supported directly by the new
kernel (1.2.0+). I have been reading the newsgroups for several days
now, and it seems to me that some people are having problem with at least
one component of the above hw.
I plan to get the new slackware from sunsite. It would be nice if all my
hardwares are supported without additional patches.
thanx in advance,
