Niceto hear you Help an Australian Out with her Dilemna.
My little Problem is Iam using OLD distro for a entry level machine-- A COMPAQ DESKPRO2000/166 Pentium with 64mb RAM(simms) and a MATROX MIllenium VIDEO CARD(2 meg) and a 3COM 3c509 ETHeRNET NIC card. MY Distro is a REDHAT 6.0 from a GREAT book I purchased discounted @BARNES &NOBLE BOOKSTORE-Secrets Of RedHat Linux by Naba Barkakati (for $7.98) It installs fine even when I tried to UPGRADE it by installing my "PENGUIN BOOK" COMPLETE LINUX OPERATING SYSTEM 6.5 (by MacMillan Publishing -Linux-Mandrake HELIOS 6.1(ironically my OLD OS) .
The problem IS when I tired to upgrade to REDHAT 7.3 (from REDHAT LINUX For DUMMIES 7.3 ,ALL I got on the screen is a bunch of Xwindows type of Interference gibberish -Total Confusion!!!! would not auto -install!!!!!!!!!!!!! so I put 7.3 on a Seperate Harddrive ,Have to physically re-install the drive to access it -How Convienient !!!!!!!!!
So what goes????? Am I just lost or what????? ChIlIBoWl
