New PC:-
Blank HDD - the shop actually used FreeDos to test the HDD
& gave a leaflet on how to Erase that & install W7.

But- that didn't happen

so into the DvD drive went a Puppy4 cd & thus create four new partitions & erase the FreeDos

and then:- the Mepis11 onto sda3 & /home on sda6
followed by Mint10 onto sda1 & /home onto sda6
with sda4 in reserve, for future use.

works well ...

Trials and tribulations of a Linux newbie

Posted 09-04-2011 at 07:41 AM by rmcellig

I have been a longtime Mac user since 1988. I always thought that there was nothing in the world that compared to the Mac and the way it worked with the user and not against the user. In the early days I heard of Linux but was way too afraid to even give it a try seeing that I was a GUI type of guy. The command line brought me back to my primitive days with DOS. I felt it was an antiquated way to get things done. The only thing I saw in Linux was the dreaded command line and I DID NOT like that....
