I want to Thank
everyone for their suggestions. I'm real
at this. I am taking the time to do on-line lessons to learn about linux from scratch
. However, I'm in a rush for time, because of my health, to Git-R-Done!
, LOL! Once I can get the computer set-up with Ubuntu on the 80 GB drive and leave WIN 2000 Pro on the 40 GB "C" drive, then all should "well" and I shouldn't have to ask so many questions.
It's too bad that a distro of Linux, out-of-the-box, would set-up by asking a few simple questions: Do you want to be able to dual-boot to Windows as well? How large a drive do you wish to format for the linux partition? Then start the partitioning and formatting process. Next it would ask for the ./root password, user name(s) and their passwords then "install". After that look up, on-line, an "changes or updates" to the linux packages and download them. Simple, no? Maybe they already have a disto like this that I haven't heard about.
Oh, BTW, I'm a very old, M$DOS person, so I like a command line
as well as a GUI, LOL!
Well, It's pert near 6:45am (1145 hrs Zulu), so I need some breakfast, yogurt and granola with a cut-up banana (type II diabetic) and another cup of my WORLD'S FAMOUS, Cajun Cowboy SOCK kawphy
, to start my day. Oh, for those of you who are ham radio op's. I'll be on 28.365 MHz. lower sideband, calling "CQ-10".
