  1. Google.
  2. Link Obviously, the answer to this question varies tremendously based on your use of the system. However, these numbers can be used as a starting point: (root) 60MB /usr 500MB (no X) or 660MB (with X) /var 25MB /tmp 50MB swap 32MB Those are minimum suggested filesystem sizes for a full system install. The numbers include enough extra space to permit you to run a typical home system that is connected to the Internet, but not much else. Also a useful link
  3. Does this count? ( They've probably gotten $100 out of me over the years, not much. But still it's something. ) I love OpenBSD. I wish I had money to purchase the latest release. I like having a nice physical copy/etc. I'll have to hold off for now.
  4. Ubuntu & OpenBSD -- very odd mix. Obviously one isn't Linux, but I use it a lot. I used to use Slackware a lot more years back, it's one of my favorites. Age: 21.5
  5. I've never really had any problems with Windows until the annoying endless configuring loop came around on Vista. Otherwise, My experience has been alright, little to no issues at all, if any, easily fixable. The same applies ( ease of use/lack of problems ) to my experiences with Linux ( Slackware? Ubuntu? etc... ) as well as OpenBSD. OpenBSD is my all time favorite OS, when I want a server, or a 'basic desktop' on old hardware ; it is my first choice. If I want a little bit better of a desktop experience I would go torwards Slackware or Ubuntu. ( Depending on hardware ) Slackware would be my first choice, since it was my very first experience with Linux. ( However, OpenBSD was my first little project to toy with.. ) Every OS/Distro has it's own problems, mostly on a per user basis (opinion), you can maintain a fairly secure Windows install, just as a OpenBSD, just as Linux, it's a matter of know-how and taking the time to understand the OS you are using. ( Insert argument here as to which is the winnnaaarrrr. ) I feel safe no matter what I use. If i had to pick in order, out of personal preference? OpenBSD / Slackware / Windows 2003. I enjoy the following three. My laptop is currently running Ubuntu, My desktop is running Windows 2003. Back at home, I have an OpenBSD server, but its kind of out of commission due to having moved out. Also there is an XP box, and another 2k3 desktop, those are in use, but not by me, but i maintain them, keep them in good shape. I can adapt to using almost anything, I enjoy technology. A few years ago I might have ranted about how much better x is than y, but my ideas have changed since then.
  6. http://www.theantidrug.com/E-Monitoring/internet-lingo.asp A funny.
  7. Google -> Images -> Type "sizzlean" = ?
  8. Bump. Thanks, just wondering if anyone has any 'success stories' with using my guide. If not thats chill.
  9. I could barely listen to the first 4 minutes of this. I felt raped. :yell: No more need be said.
  10. You might find this to be interesting as well.
  11. *shudder* It's still a rpm-based distro. You should rather say: "Redhat/SuSE/Ubuntu/Fedora/mandr(iva|ake)/whatever simple distro = MS LINUX" If you are going to call things M$-like because of their simplicity and/or ease of use. I know its your distro of choice so you choose to ignore this. ( Or so it appears to be your distro of choice. ) -- What you said about SuSE can be said about many other distros. But lets not continue the flammage. ReEdit: I really hope this was a joke.
  12. Would it hurt to install the other two? It seems like it might give you extra things. I tried booting up with the cd in the drive, but nothing happened, it started with windows. CD2 and CD3? No. It wouldnt hurt. But CD3 I believe is source. Change the boot order. ie. floppy, cdrom, hard drive, rather than: hard drive, floppy, cdrom. When you boot up your computer there should be a key you can hit ( ie. ESC, F10, DEL, etc. ) From there you need to poke around untill you find the section on changing the boot order. If your boot order is correct though, your cd you burnt is bunk.
  13. If you can type cfdisk, and you have the ability to hit the enter key many times. You can install slackware. I hear Slackware Handbook Project can be quite useful. Also: You do not need two cds. You only need one. ( Depending. ) Edit: Oh, they dont know how to install nero and open the iso with it and burn it to a cd. Didn't see that.
  14. I thought this would be an apropriate place to post this. If there are any errors, please point them out to me. It's still rough. Comments? ( It's been fuck-all ages since ive dicked with MySQL -- so i may be "off" ) Edit: This post "inspired" me to write something quick up, I'll make changes as necessary.
  15. That doesn't mean anyone will read it. People tend to, not, you know...look.
