finally making the switch to linux
alright ive decided thats it time to move to linux. i dont play games on my desktop anymore cause of lack of time and ive begun to realize that i can do everything in linux that i can in winxp. anything that i cant i can just use wine. now i have some final questions before i do a complete format/install. ive pretty much set my mind to installing libranet (im a huge debian fan) but i am curious about a few things. i use adelphia power link cable internet and there isnt a sign in or anything for it (its always on). will i be able to just use it if libranet detects my eth card??? also, can i use debian woody discs to do the apt-cdrom add even if its libranet? i have 384 megs of ram and was wondering if i should go with kde or just choose to bipass it and go for blackbox or icewm? ummmm, do u recommend libranet for a smooth install? im not necessarily a noob at this cause i installed woody on an older laptop and its workin great but now im doin it on my main sys and i dont want it to trash anything. if anyone thinks of anything else to suggest or just has some words of advice, please post em!
