Another Linux first????

Two weeks ago at Xhibition there was a 486DX2-66 running Linux in our
booth.  Has anybody else used a Linux machine in a tradeshow booth?

As someone there said "Wow!  He's running Linux and he's impressing
people with it."

Sorry, you're not the first...I ran several demos of atmospheric radiative transfer/
constituent retrieval code at a show in Salt Lake City in mid-March. I was running
programs originally developed for an IBM RS/6000 for calculating spectra at various
altitudes, and vertical profiles of temperature, pressure, and component mixing
ratios. I would run the program based on conditions a user specified, and generate
plots (using gnuplot) all within a couple of minutes. The amazing thing was, I was
using a 486/33DX Laptop running linux...it performed flawlessly...

        There was an Yggdrasil booth with a demo machine at USENIX
in January 1993.

1. Install Linux first or NT40 first??

Hi,

I am planning to install RedHat4 and NT40 on one SCSI drive (1G) using
the NT boot. From what I've read so far, it seems to me that I should
install Linux first and then NT. I'm confident with this procedure too.
But, I got NT now and I'll not have RedHat for another 2-3 weeks and I'd
like to test my machine ASAP. Any precautions I should take to install
NT40 first?  Any inputs will be very appreciated.

Thanks a lot!
