ok lets start like this. i know a lot about windows and computer hardware. but about linux.. i guess almost nothing... i have high analitical skills and logistic...
now.. my pc:
amd k6-2 @ 550mhz, 256 pc100 mem, sis530 board (integrated audio cm, video, modem etc) and 2 hdd's. as it right now i have win98 + win2k + suse.. i think ver 9... not sure... kinda old tho
my problem is: suse is bloddy slow, yaks (whatever is called, dont have internet at home) says my video cards its 630 something... suse hardware tool recognize it properly, control center doesnt know anything (let me tell ya that module its hard to use)...
i have an old version of ubuntu which i like but i like to have more "software", i cant install mandrake or fedore cuz my disc's arent working anymore (scraches
) and well... i wanted to try redhat 6.2 but i dont quite understand the install process... slackware its also a small distro etc... anyways..
i want a distro with gnome (i cant get to find how to switch to gnome within suse) cuz i feel like gnome is faster. also something that will run flawlessly with my old pc, also i dont care if the install may be hard as i heard from gentoo since im willing to learn stuff... and well.. some gaming aint bad :P
i have tried live knoppix, kinda like it... but i want something installed... not run it from CD... so... any clues any additional info ya want me to add?
