linux has its uses but it IS NOT in no way shape or form made for the everyday home user.
its not a friendly OS, and has a learning curve about a mile high.
im running it on a 3.0 HT Pent IV(overclocked to 3.45) with a gig of PC3200 DDR and an MSI 865PE NEO2 FIS2R mobo the baddest pent 4 board you can get or was a month ago lol.
and SUSE which i find to be the MOST user friendly of all the linux distro's still runns laggy and is bloated.

i like suse more than any other, but i still dont see its use for everyday people.

and last week Linux was voted the most insecure OS . Yes Windows beat it for security. FreeBSD was the MOST secure.

its gunna take years before linus goes full mainstream. and i hope it does. i hope it makes MS sweat bullets. but until it becomes more user friendly and more GUI friendly,, well,,,,

anyways i found an easy to use tutorial to install the ATI cards to make AGP be enabled, and here shortly i will try it,, although its the same thing i have tried time and time again,, im willing to give it another try. what the heck why not.
if it still dont work,, then i got a small hard drive ill keep suse loaded on for emergency use or things that might need linux's abiilities.

here is the link give it a try
