Planning to get a new desktop for my linux purposes.
Was looking at HP dc7800 Ultra Slim Desktop
. I can see that they offer a configuration with FreeDOS too which is what I require as I intend on installing Fedora Core 7 (or/and Ubuntu 7.10).
Processor : IntelR CoreT2 Duo Processor E6850
Operating system : FreeDOS
Chipset : IntelR Q35 Express
Memory type : 2GB DDR2-Synch DRAM PC2-5300 non-ECC
Hard disk drive : 160 GB SATA 3.0 Gb/s
Optical drive : PATA DVD+/-RW (DL/DF) LightScribe Slim Drive
When asked in the HP Biz forum
, I got a reply
Linux is not a supported operating system on the dc7800 models therefore any drivers that you will require will need to come from the Linux community not HP.
This is odd. Does this mean that Linux (FC7 esp) may not function properly here ?
