GolfProRM Posted April 18, 2003 Share Posted April 18, 2003 After debating about whether or not to try installing a Linux distro, I found an old 4 Gig harddrive at work and decided to give it a try.... I heard many of you mention that Mandrake was a pretty easy distro to install/run, so I broke down and downloaded it. After waiting paitently for 3 hours (I love Cable! ) I had all three iso's downloaded. I ran the install program, but it locked up while creating the floppy boot-disk. I had to run the install program again, and luckily it worked!!!! It'll be awhile before I get completely acclimated to the whole thing, but I'm posting this message using Mozilla that came with Mandrake I'm a pretty happy Linux newbie right now! Anyway, I'm really excited to get into this deeper, and I'll have to keep everyone posted on my trials and tribulations, but so far, so good!
