Smile Installation on Laptop hp dv6000 pavillion: issues


Hello

I am a brand new Linux user. I have the laptop above with xp installed since the purchase. The sata Hd have one partition of 120 gb (50 used) so I wish to create a partition to host linux.
My aim is dual boot, i prefer to mantain Xp (at the moment).
So i ask 2 questions if you have an answer let me know
-I am uncertain between installing Open suse 10.3 or Ubuntu 7.1 gutsy gibbbon
-it' more safe to create partition during the linux installation? or before, from xp, with Partition Magic or other tools?
Keep cool and thx in advance

Paolo

Sure you can. I have I dv4000 serie, with the same thing. Down load gparted live cd. Burn that cd (is bootable). Restart you machine with the cd inside. That cd will travel you to the partition process. Once you "cut" your hard drive you run windows again, so it will know you reduce it space. And then install linux on your new spaces.
That was what I did and work perfect

Good luck

Smile changing issue

Hello..
Here i am back with another issue. Why? cause my hp is in the rubbish now,the motherboard unfo.went off last march.
I have another pc , older., a tohshiba satellite pro (2002) with pentium iv 256 mb ram and now i am going to set a partition of 10 gb around, to host linux...32 bit this time...ubuntu.
the question is : some installation requirements state that I need at least 320 mb of Ram.
Do i have to give up , or i may try to install it?

is there an easy way out from this trouble?

Bye

I've been unfortunate enough to replace the mobo on dv6000 for a customer. They run about $150 if you look hard enough. I wasn't impressed with the machine at all, so get rid of it at the first chance when you get it working and buy something better.

As for the Toshiba, 256mb should be enough to be pretty much any distro going.

Thx all settled

Hi
I worked out this new issue installing Mandriva 2008 on toshiba satellite in dual boot with xp. Everything was ok and, eventually i have my linux OS.
A question: How to set up the internet coonection? During the installation i have been asked to set all parameters for the connection. I choos dsl and put my details (username as email, password)
Switchin to the desktop I tried to open the internet configuration but it's not set up. I can't use internet.
I have a Cd with the drivers of the ADSL modem the provider gave to me...it was included in the package
With Xp is ok, ...
my question is How can i do to use internet? do i have to use the cd with adsl modem drivers an try to install on Mandriva? it will work on linux?
Or I have to set the parameters of the connection manually?
Sorry for the questions but i am in a tight spot..
bye
