Practically new


My first post:

I've read about Linux occasionally for a couple years and even took a course with a lot of Unix in it over 15 years ago. I decided to try out Linux on a Dell Inpspiron 2650 laptop after being frustrated by the Windows XP system that was on it and also finding out that drivers (video etc.) for Windows 98 don't exist (at least I can't find them) that works with the laptop. I recently installed Mandrake Linux 9.1 on it and got the display (video with correct resolution, etc.), KDE desktop system and sound working on it. There seems to be a Winmodem in it and I plan to try out a US Robotics XJ5560 PC card modem some time which should work.
