This post was written previously. I include it here so that maybe other people can benefit from this long story of how I got my laptop to finally work, and because I like posting to blogs.

--New Computer--
Well, I've got a new computer. It's a Dell Laptop Inspiron 1521. It's great, but now I'm trying to put linux on it. I'm using debian linux, and my goal is to run 'lenny', or what they also call 'testing'. I still have dial-up at home, but the computer has a wireless card, so...

This is my first blog entry.
Just wanted to congratulate for the amazing work you've been doing with this website.

I have ever so wondered what people find so great in Linux. Yet over the years I have been but a passive installer of Red Hat, Fedora, and ubuntu distros on my very own system.
