I read about hardware profiles (or something to this extent) here and noticed that one moderator added the profile of his machine as signature to all his/her posts. I made a list of the hardware of the old box I'm using to learn my first steps in Linux. Presently, I am using Mandriva 2005. I've looked into other flavours trying to find "my distro".
Is there a particular place where I should post this? If so where and how?
Should I append it as signature to my posts like the moderator I mentionned?
For all its worth, I include it here:
256 MB SDRAM
Maxtor 20 gig (the drive where Mandriva is installed)
Maxtor 80 gig (FAT 32 data drive from the days it was a Wiin box)
Fujitsu 2 gig (FAT 32 data drive from the days it was a Wiin box)
Sony CD-RW (8X)
SMC 1211 TX
Soundblaster Value Plus
ATI Rage Fury 128 (with TV out)
[old and probably useless] US Robotics modem (I think it is NOT a Winmodem but am not sure)
I didn't have any problems so far. (I'm very much at the beginning)
This is my first post and I hope I didn't violate any rules
