Progeny Debian 2.0 rc1 on Toshiba 2435-s255


I just got done installing Progeny Debian 2.0 rc1 on my toshiba 2435 laptop
and it looks amazing... IT's a distro for develops including eclipse, mono... of course all distros are for developers...

Can't wait for it to go FINAL...

I got frustrated with installing Slack 10 on my laptop for the "millionth time"... especially with the sound not working... But I figured upgrading the kernel to 2.6.9 would solved that problem.. however it didn't...

Followed some suggestions on the forums... but it still didn't work... funny thing was that it worked a few install prior to me canning Slack... I love Slack... I think its probably one of the better distros out there...

thought about FC3 but damn.. 4 disk... not for me... Also... i wasn't too fond of RHN... so i checked at distrowatch.org and decided to check out Progeny... Everything worked fine out of the box.... of course it took 3 installs... probably due to faulty disk 2 when i burned it...

anyways.. gonna test it out... and wait until slack 10.1 comes out...
and try Slack again....

Eventually, i'll can windoze on my laptop...
