    Finally after about 6 weeks of hell trying to download iso distros
    off the net then realising they where *damaged* iso’s

    then re downloading & more of the same on 56k wich took 4eVER!!!
    after all that time wasted ..as frustrated as I was, I decided to go & buy
    a $50 linux book that includes the distro dvd.

    Finally I am a linuxoid 😀

    now i can use my microshaft exploit XP cd as a frisby 😆

    naaah that would insult frisbys!

    **throws it in garbage** thats where it belongs

    woot 🙂

    this is a milestone for you, something you can look back on and say, “Yep, I did it, I’M THE MAN!” 😀

    Perhaps one day I’ll get there, best I can do for right now, is try out an alternate linux operating system off of a USB boot.

    btw, which distro did you go with?

    yeah it seems I purchased an older version of the SuSe distro v9.1

    not knowingly aware there was a version 10 BAH!

    went out and got SuSe v10 last week and now I am having a driver/winmodem compatability issue now as it seems that it wont let me use my modem.

    using smppd & kinternet it seems there is a major malfunction
    in the dial out script error or something..

    it says smppd options error BAH!

    so now im back on windblows @ half partitions 70 gig total
    for linux & windows until i can resolve the flaw.

    sorry if I have’nt been able to continue in helping mod/developement
    along… but I will asap!

    cheers guys 🙂

    you just HAD to get the souped up computer contraption, if you just got the cookie-cutter Dell junk like I have I bet you wouldn’t have a driver problem.

    😛 😛 😛 😛 😛 😛

    Sounds like quite a headache, perhaps I shall NOT do Damn Small Linux after all. HD never arrived anyway … off to leave some bad feedback at Ebay….. 🙁
