Ugh...I've been at it all night... My space heater needed an upgrade and it was PAINFUL. Crusty old tower with 32MB ram and a 2x cd rom drive. Installed RH8 through rawrite to a floppy.


Took a long time to install.

I know, I know..you're probably thinking get linux on a floppy or some permutation...great idea...except I *want* all the tools like gcc, etc. :)

Anyway.. Turns out that this distro didn't recognize my ethernet cards, so it was fun!!! (I Had to learn about (reteach myself) all about modprobe all over again. Ah..how I wish I had never had to remember it. Or is that I wish I never forgot it? One of the two...pick your evil.

Ok, the sysadmin hat is almost off...just have to lock her down a little bit more (what ever that means).

Next couple of days hopefully will be about wireless!

Lemme clean up around here! dust bunnies, cables, and keyboards oh my!
