First off - I'm rank newbie. I have a new Gateway laptop with XP OS. I need to install a linux operating system to run some binary code for various analyses.
I have Mandranke 9.1 install discs, and desire to load as dual boot with lilo.
My question pertains to drivers -- will this 9.1 install version likely deal with detecting appropriate drivers for the hardware on a new laptop, or am I going to have to track down the drivers prior to install?
Did I mention I was newbie ? Any insight into what I will be getting into will be greatly appreciated. Can be reached at email@example.com
