But I am beginning to think I'm just not smart enough to run Linux so maybe should let somebody else have the magazine. (I am or was trying to make a 10-year-old Dell laptop usable for household-mobile email and web surfing. Did succeed at putting Puppy onto a thumb drive which would boot a desktop but not the laptop. Laptop needs a new BIOS to permit boot from thumb drive. Unable to get wireless to work with the desktop. Unable to get Puppy to install onto the hard disk. Now they say I can get a Windows 7 laptop for only $300. Outrageous!)

That's pretty cool! Just wanted to say, I've been using Ubuntu 9.10 for just over 3 months now, and I've got absolutely no reason whatsoever to return to Windows. And, Karmic Koala works perfectly on a 6 year old laptop with 768 MB of RAM! Long live Linux!

Just to reiterate: Posting in this thread does not impact your eligibility in this contest in any way. There are three subscriptions being given away. One if for simply logging in. The other two are for posting in the LQ S&F forum, which this thread is NOT in. Additionally, "me too" or "I'd like to win" posts with no other content will not be eligible. It has to be a legitimate post to make you eligible for one of the two subscriptions related to posting.

Does this 10YO laptop have a CD drive?
Try running it from there. You can pull the disk once booted so that the drive is usable by the OS.
