He he he; one of the perks of having broadband- most of the distros are already sitting here on cd. :-)On Sunday 13 May 2007, John wrote:Well I can say for sure now, using linux (or at least FC) has left a really bad taste in my mouth...

Two outta three FC boxes (here) have 'misplaced' the floppy and cd drives. I know the cd drive was working when I switched over to KDE from Gnome; now its MIA with KDE too. This box, can't even find my scanner-- jeez, I can go to the HP site and get the scanner software for Win95 to Vista. How screwed up is Fedora 7 going to be??While 'linux is linux', distros do vary quite a bit, and some distros are better than others with particular hardware. Before giving up, try out some live CDs if you can get hold of them - many are available for download. In particular, I'd think that either ubuntu or mandriva may suit you better than fedora. Hope that helps Anne
Thanks for your help in the past btw.
