Just to let you know, I'm new to Linux. I haven'treally layed my hands on many distros, my I currently use Debian, and Mandrake on my servers and desktops. My laptop may stay Linux free, accept for the occasional hacking, for which I will use Knoppix-STD live cd, or PHLAk on a live CD.
I just recently ordered a Dell Inspiron 8600, with the works. It's a Christmas, and Birthday present from my parents. It's main use is for college, and we figured we would get one now, before the colleges look at expenses. That way we don't have to fish out more money right away during college years. If they see a $2000 laptop on a credit card, they will make us pay more in the long run.
So yeah, I can't wait. I have two days to wait, it's Sunday, and it comes Tuesday. Unfortunately, I may have to wait to use it. It's gonna drive me insane. I will post some pics in the Dell section when it comes, and will make sure every last thing is documented.
So Linux will runon the machines, in a live cd form. I will make a small partition on the 80 Gig. HD for saving and crap because I heard that you couldn't write to NTFS partitions in Linux distros. Is this true. I will make a 5Gig. Part if it is, so I can do work in Linux.
BTY, can I install an AD HOC network in Linux? I need to AD HOC at school, because the HS isn't wireless yet...
, so I will just have to put my own temporary setup in! So here's to my school!
