Dual boot RedHat 8 and Windows XP on Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop. (Nifty machine, but little support from RedHat.)
Nvidia Geforce 2 Go  (gonna upgrade to Geforce 4 440 Go) P4 1.6 gigahertz and a 15'' screen.
All for 1600 bucks. Go figure...

Sounds like a pretty nice setup you've got there, lattera.  How many computers are on your network?


As you can see, I have 3 computers on the network. I've got 2 networks, though. 2 computers on each network.... ;)

FreeBSD is tough, until you get used to it. It's easy to set up. The installation is somewhat similar to rh7.1 text install. (it's text only)

I will help you with FreeBSD 4.5+ at any time. Just give me a buz...

Win 98, until I buy redhat (My friend recommends it).

FreeBSD is not neccessarily text only, you can use XFree with it just like Linux.  :)

I've got an old Apple II sitting around some where.  Gotta love Dig Dug and Trapazoid.  :)

You're goddamn right. Retro stuff is great. It's all about the gameplay, not brilliant graphics (let's face it, most games attempt, purely, to put decent graphics in their game. If it's good, it's probably an accident.
