I have to say,
Installing Suse 9.1 on my laptop in traffic. (Okay, so I started the install in traffic, but finished it at home.)
Making an ISO image in the command line from a CD I have made. Still haven't figured out how to do that in Windows, guess now it doesn't matter.
Installing ConsoleOne for Linux! W00t! Now I can change the lusers passwords without rebooting into windows.
Other linux installs I have done.
Toshiba Satelite 105CS. I downloaded the 5 debian floppies, and got it installed, then decided to re-install it for some reason but in that process I took it apart and damaged the floppy drive. Bummer. The battery was dead anyway.
Micron XP-RedHat 7.3 or 8.0 it worked well, but couldn't get the Novell client from sourceforge to work on it. The only client that'd work was the portguese one. And I had to re-compile the kernel just to get ncpfs support.
thankfully, that laptop and it's 5 minute battery are gone now.
Suse 9.0 on my Dell Latitude C840. worked ok, but I got the upgrade fever buzz, hence why I downloaded Suse Pro 9.1 from ISOs and re-installed. Now, there are no Linux issues at all on the machine, I just need to get Internet exploder to work in wine and the proprietary HelpDesk app. Oh yeah, I also need to hook up the Palm Pilots next on Windows...
Installed RedHat 9.0 on 16 machines. Actually, it was a dual-boot win98 and Redhat linux situation.
the machines were compaq deskpro p2 333 mhz machines with 64 megabytes of RAM.
the class had to be teaching the GUI linus (why?)
Half of them had no working CD drives.
Only 3GB hard drives to play with.
I split the drives down the middle, found out that wouldn't work, created a 1 GB windows partition, and the rest for RedHat 9.0
Specified a home desktop, but customized and removed internationalization, cd recording software, etc. to get RedHat to fit.
Needless to say, after ghostcasting the entire lab, it wouldn't boot.
found out that I had to run a linux rescue operation on each machine.
I never made the linux rescue disk, so I had to swap out about 8 different hard drives to finish the lab.
I hope to become as proficient in Linux as I am in windows, maybe next time try Linux From Scratch.
Sorry if this all seems pretty lame to others.
