Anyone have any luck with using one of the linux flavors run directly from a cd? I tried Knoppix and freesBIE, but no luck with my mobo. It works, but i cant get the internet to function (im guessing it doesnt have drivers built in for my gigabyte nforce 2 network adapter). Which distro has the most built in drivers and still allows access to my windows drives? Or is there something i can do to get the internet to function? The next one im gonna test is Slax...

Glad to hear that. Slackware is the way to go as far as Linux is concerned. :D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
