Help me Linuxize my poor laptop...


My school is loaning me a laptop over christmas break and I am not allowed to change the OS so I'm stuck with WinXp. I've used it and it's ok, but I miss the ability to pimp out my desktop and all that. Anyway, I figured that I will change around as much as I can with out getting into any trouble and I was wondering if any of you know where I can download some Linux Icons for Windoze?

knoppix, MEPIS

If you are not permitted to change the OS, but can change the BIOS to boot from CD-ROM or floppy, you can run knoppix or MEPIS without installing to the hard-drive. MEPIS i s running from CD-ROM on the laptop I am posting from right now (also loaned from school). It is truly awesome. Autodetected everything (sound card, wireless mouse, wireless card, video card, cable modem). It runs fast, even from CD-ROM. Streaming music as I post. Just great.

I might check that out, sounds nifty. Although I am still looking for some icons or backgrounds or something. Screw Bliss!
