It doesn't run on one of my machines, so I think I'll install linux on it so I can play uplink.

you must be ******* joking if you think i run linux. about half my devices are incompatible with it and there are basically no games for it. yes ok, uplink is for linux and a few others. but i haven't seen a game in a shop for linux - there maybe where you live, that's not the point. i'm going off games though and may change to linux when i upgrade to some super compatible stuff. if i had to choose a distribution, it would be slackware - it has no bull****, unlike redhat or mandrake - might as well have windows if you use those. i use windows 2000 - i'm comfortable with it and it does all the things i need. nice stable and again no bull****.

Linux - SuSE 7.2

Hey A, why don't you post what hardware you have?  Maybe I can help suggest a distro you could give a try that does have good hardware support.
