How To Maintain A Windows Computer

Recommended Posts

You're very welcome!  Good luck, man! 

As I suggested take the time to learn about the components in your laptop, then find the distro that'll support your laptop hardware.

Well, i'm pretty good with hardware (at least better with hardware than software), but as for distros, i'm totally clueless ^_^^_^^_^

Once you've determined that your laptop will run Linux I suggest that you give one of the rpm based distros a try. Ubuntu, Mandriva or Fedora are easy to install and configure. The websites for these distros have a lot of support documentation; I suggest that you read up on how to install Linux, configuration, terminology, file systems.

As you learn more you'll feel confident as you prepare to install Linux.

I was trying to use an old 3drage All in Wonder card, but i found out it doesn't work with KnoppMyth. I was planning on getting an AverTV card once it worked....
