ColinI keep it the same for all distros - one password for root and one for user. Otherwise it would be too difficult. At school, we have to change them every three months. After coming back and not logging on for two months I tried a few and then finally thought, why not try my Linux favorites. :D Jackpot!

OOPS JuliaI was just looking at Suse 9.3 BUT did think about putting it on my External Drive It has XP Home SP2 on it right now and the information I have is that to partition and put another OS on sometimes givs XP palpitationsSo any advice will be as ALWAYS appreciatedCheers for YearsColin :D :D :D

The only advice I have is that if you go for it, simply make sure that you tell it to write lilo to the partition, not to the mbr. Then you can use the easy trick to add it to your lilo without needing to go through all the file commands, etc. It really is quite easy. Do not go with the 10.0. It is not stable enough for your needs.

Then we can set up an install party if you have 25G empty. We will have to figure out a time to do so. I am walking out the door to dinner right now. :D Hubby's taking me out for dinner tonight so he does not have to cook.

JuliaOne where do I get the ImageBUT the most palpitating :D thing I have is that possibly Windows XP will be altered with the mbr or lilo or whichever way this works and fr9om what I have been told THIS WILL GIVE XP problemsAlthough I am still hanging in there CURIOUS as USUAL B) Colin :D :) :D

At this point you still worry about XP? Don't! It takes two lines in Lilo to access Windows and those two lines are done automatically. :)Here is a mirror for you: [url="ftp://mirror.storagetek.com/pub/systems/suse/i386/9.3/iso/"]ftp://mirror.storagetek.com/pub/systems/suse/i386/9.3/iso/[/url]You will see five CDs there. :lol:
