I need help! Haven't used linux in 15 years. Acer Aspire Laptop /w Vista...
I need the most basic help I can get.
I want to put linux on my Vista based Acer Aspire Laptop... but I want to do it as a partition. Back 15 years ago, I partitioned my 486 laptop with Win 95 and Linux and coped... sort of. My linux guru and I broke up and linux and I sadly parted.
I don't even know where I can get a complete download of linux, so that I don't have to use my 3g internet downloading while I am working my linux woes out.
I am going to be away from my high speed internet for a while and though this would be a good time to work at this task.
I need to have everything I might possibly need to have on disk before I depart. I have minimal internet while I am away. I want to save my wireless for question asking and not downloading.
What do I need, where do I go to get it and where are the how-to manuals and software.
I want to have some specific software that I know linux GNUs offer rather than high priced Win versions.
