rsync server boot/control script

Time to celebrate

Posted 12-24-2010 at 06:04 PM by Larry Webb

My wife has been windows free for three months. I have not had to do any repairs to her desktop and she has been telling her friends how great her Suse works. I now have my daughter asking to install linux on her netbook. She is not sure about their desktop, but is thinking about letting me setup a dual boot.
