Perhaps because it was my first and I'm comfortable with the directory structure and emelfm etc, I prefer it to knoppix and kannotix, which seem big and complicated (and too big to boot toram).  And I'm not mad about konqueror as a file manager or web browser really.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who dislikes Konqueror; it's way too big and clumsy for the kind of hardware I prefer to run.

Hopefully I'll be doing a hard drive install or two of DSL in the next few weeks and if all goes well a lot of folks will be enjoying PCs that would otherwise be sent to the dump. vague sentence structure is intentional; am I talking about the people or their PCs? I'm not sure you really want to know...I know for a fact that I don't....

I live in an economically depressed rural area with extremely high dump fees. I know I ask dumb questions and have a lot to learn, but I'm so close to realizing a dream now that I can almost touch it.....

Sorry,  I don't do windows.

I saw something about Metropipe's distro on /. and tried it out because I liked the idea of a persistent desktop between work and home; at home I could boot from the USB drive and at work I could run the same OS in qemu under Windows.  

I didn't like some of the things about Metropipe's version so I did some poking around and discovered that it was really just DSL.  I got 1.0 mostly figured out inside a week and got totally hooked in the process.

I was looking in Distrowatch about a distribution for my old 486 computer, because I work for a long time in my other PC with linux, and I am very happy with DSL because now I utilize it in a CF as frugal in other computers.

Hello there!

This time I welcome myself.

I found info about DSL in (my most loved forum ever)
And I want to make a question to someone:

Can you help me about installing DSL on a Thinkpad 760ED? Because I wish to give it to my little brother (His name is Luis Jose, he's 14 years old).

I thank you for the help...

Thanks amigos!!! :)

See you later!

gArGöS.fRoM.mExIcO:  First, search (from beginnning and newer - using Thinkpad AND 760) the laptop forum - and if whatever problem you're looking to solve doesn't come up, then ask in there with more detailed questions than "Can you help me install...) :)

Friend;y bunch - as long as you search for what you're looking for first.
