Today is the day

Well today is the day I blast my old Gateway laptop and put a *nix on it. I have finally decided on Linux, Red Hat Fedora Core. Why Red Hat? Well the reason is that I just don’t have the time to have fun with slackware Linux or *BSD, so I went with something that I know, so I would have it up and running in less then a day. I again am doing a net install of Fedora Core. I have started the installation, answered all the questions needed to be answered, and now am going to go to bed, when I get home from work the system should have finished pulling all the RPM’s off of the Internet and installed them on the computer, so it will be ready for me to start to mess with it. I believe this system might take more time to get up and running then my main Linux box. “Why is that?” you may ask. Well the reason is because in my main Linux box, I used very standard parts. In this laptop it is a gateway, which means that they probably used some proprietary and off the wall parts, so I will have to do some work to get it to go. The only part I am not going to worry about getting up and running is the modem. I will us mainly broadband and at times that that is not there, I will be using the bluetooth dongle to get attached to my cell phone for the internet. So the advanture starts today
