Dell Laptop, model C510/C610 w/1.2gigHz intel processor, 512mb RAM,Mobility Radeon ATI display adapter, Intel 82801CAM ultra ATA storage controller-28A,Digital Flat Panel(1024x768), NIC is 3com 3C920 Fast Ethernet(3C905C-TX compatible), PCMCIA(Texas instruments PCI-1420 Cardbus controller),Intel 82801CA/CAm USB Host Controller and USB root hub. Also, I have a 320GB external harddrive(Western Digital) connected via the USB port.
Would Mandrake 1.0 distro work? Could a distro be put onto the external drive ( WinXP is on the internal 20GB HD and the WD is in FAT32 with some windows data files on it.).I also have a 2wire wireless adapter which connects via USB port.
The printer I usually use is an HP Deskjet 3930 but may soon switch to an Epson C88+.
I am a newbie to Linux but have an A+ certification and am willing to try something new. My email is:
