I have an old computer...well maybe old isn't the word, it's more likely ready to be send at a museum
Nonetheless is it the only one I have, and would like to give Linux Mandrake a try. I'm not the big gamer so I don't really borther about all that stuff.
Anyway I got a mate to download Mandrake 8.0 to me ( yeah, it's a bit old by now, but I was told it was the most stable ). Now when I try to boot my computer at the cd isn't it even booting from it... so I asked my mate if there was some bootdisk I could get, he searched for a few days and found one, and it does work but just after the initializing of the bootprocess does it look like it want to continue in a higher resolution than my screen is capeable of.
I really want to get Linux in so that I might get a faster computer ( is this only rumors or is Linux faster... I haven't been able to find any places which speak about that ).
Well thsi post got longer than i expected.. my main goal of it was actually: how do I install Linux Mandrake 8 at a computer which these spec.
Intel Pentium 166MHz
Quantum 2 GB HD
12 Spin Cd-Rom Drive
48 MB SD-Ram
Then last thing; Is every Linux actually the same with only a few changes ? I'm pretty new in this. Last thing... Will I be able to use / open my Word97 stuff at Linux ?
