Anyone familiar with Linux willing to help me install it? I have installed before, but have had problems every time I install it. Maybe contact me via
MSN/AIM or something so I can be walked through it? I can talk from my laptop because I want to install Linux on my desktop. U2U me if you are
willing, or atleast can provide some insight. I have Slackware 9.1. Thanks
don't get slackware
if you're just beginning, try out knoppix live cd (based on debian).
you can boot up directly from the cd without installing anything.
if you like it, it has its own self-installer... this will automatically turn your pc into a debian system.
Heh, I did fine installing. I got it to work now, just had to get xf86config right. I knew a general idea of how to install, my problem was getting
startx to work which I worked out last night. Now, I need to get my USB mouse working properly and internet going. Other then that, no problems so
if you have further problems, you should definitely check out www.justlinux.com one of the best forums with probably every single error known to
Linux been worked out on their forums. If you get bored with Slack you should check out Gentoo, portage simply owns.
