I own an old, quite customised Thinkpad a21m laptop, which I still use intensively when Iím out of town: with 256 Mb of RAM, a 750 MHz Pentium 3 chip and a 1024x768 screen running off an ATI chip, I can run pretty much all recent GNU/Linux distros around. I also have built a nice living-room warmer based off an Athlon64 X2 3800+ with a big, fat hard disk and more RAM than you can shake a stick at (well, almost). Is there a problem here? If I tell you that I need to download ten (10) different CD images to install both according to their specificities, maybe youíll get it.
