HP Pavilion ze1250 - RedHat/Mandrake/Debian/Slackware


I have an HP Pavilion ze1250 laptop running on an AMD Athlon XP 1800+ processor. I've got Mandrake 9.1 installed, but received this error: insmod'ing module ohci1493 failed at /usr/bin/perl-install.pm line 409.....I searched the internet but couldn't find a similar situation with any type of solution.....

Hi Jimstrailer

I would reccomend

Mandrake 9.1

Easy to install - easy to use - enough in their to keep you interested.

You can check out the various Linux distros at Distrowatch - there's a link in my signature at the bottom

Ok.

After reviewing various distros and what they offer I am going to go with Mandrake 9.1.

What should I expect as far as setting up a wireless PCMCIA card......
