hi, i'm avery-very newbie in linux. i'm using windows for about 99% of my lifetime.
Recently, i've just bought a RH 8.0 linux. and i'm so confused about installing it in my system, because i've read this forum and it sounds scary to install RH 8.0...many hardware problems occur. i mean i think linux doesn't support almost any new hardware. that's why i'm still afraid to install it.
my system is :
1.MOtherboard Asus P4PE w/ serial ATA, Gigabit ethernet,integrated soundmax card,etc with Intel 845PE
2.VGA card : pixelview GeForce 4 MX440 64MB AGP 8x
3. CD-ROM liteon 52x
4.cd rw liteon 52x24x52x
5. Visipro memory 512Mb
I also have 2 hard drive. the primay master is for windows XP, and 'm planning to put my RH 8.0 into my slave HD.
Can, i download first all of the drivers ( if i find them) from my windows XP? so, when i install RH 8.0 i can update the driver.
could anyone help me???i'm still afraid if i install RH 8.0 will crashing my system. can anyone tell me how and where to get those driver,please?
If someone is very-very pities me, please explain me step-by-step to install RH 8.0 with my hardware specification....
please,because i really-really want to install RH8.0 because i think windows is very sucks. my computer has infected by virus because windows has many holes...
