    Buying a Powerbook with G4 or.. waiting for Powerbook with Intel?

    Yeah i'll go with good ol' ppc based G4. If only if they can release the intel ibook by very early 2006, some apps like adobe's one will have to run under rosetta (about 30% slower than native ppc) so i think by the time intel powerbook build their reputation i will have plenty of time to enjoy...

    Buying a Powerbook with G4 or.. waiting for Powerbook with Intel?

    The Acer part was sarcastic.. hehe The "What's the point?" question was for the recently OSX dev kit cracked.. i know there are huge slowdown on non-Apple x86 hardware but if they can match the speed on both non-Apple and Apple x86 hardware i mean i love Apple hardware but it's a bit pricey...

    PCI Express and AGP on the same board

    Get a PCI-E board seriously they're about the same price and if you're short on money get a ATi X300 or so.. cost 50$ in Canada. Let's say 235$ for the CPU, 75$ for the board + 50$ for the PCI-E gfx card for 360$, sell your AGP gfx card.. substract the amount of the sale + buy a nice gfx card...

    Which one?

    You have some tricky hardware.. you might want to try Ubuntu (GNOME flavor) /Kubuntu (KDE flavor) 5.04 Live CD to test if it find proper driver for your Wifi card and touchscreen.. or as X-Istence said Fedora or SuSe. Both are nice but i prefer SuSe for it's overall presentation and YaSt system.

    Which version for file/ftp server

    Mandrake 10.2 will do the job be sure to install Samba and if you want an ftp server take ProFTPd.. easy installation. There's a lot of documentation around on the web, i've learned pretty much anything i know about linux/bsd by the docs and manual. Good luck.

    non-bootable Fedora CD

    Try CD2, when FC2 was released i had the same problem, they suggested (RedHat) to boot with CD2 and then swap with CD1.. just to be safe execute the media check on all the cds, maybe a bad batch.

    Network nightmare

    I did check, i don't like the way it works with dhcpd and squid and stuff. It used to work fine with past version of Mandrake (10.0 RC, 10.0 Official, 10.1 RC) but the ICS is just ****ed up since the 10.1 Official upgrade, that's why I wanted to do it manually. Now let's sleep
