Hook up a home router to your ISP.

Most ISPs can be configured to work with a router.

Once a router is set up, it is easy to have a linux or MacOS box connect to the Internet.

Well, I've been tooling around with linux for the past year and a half. I've tried SUSE, ubuntu, debian, gentoo, etc...
I finally got fed up with all the bloat (especially for SUSE and Ubuntu), so I tried DSL, just as an experiment; I [SHOUT] LOVE [/SHOUT] DSL...right now I'm using DSL on a 366Mhz 20Gb HDD 64Mb RAM box with a gig of swap...I just load my entire music collection into the playlist in xmms, select random + repeat, hit play, and relax...ahhhh. I've even got xmms to start automatically on boot.
Now, if I could only get myDSL extensions working...


EDIT: Yay!! I finally read the wiki on myDSL extensions...and I love them. I've got everything from blender to bugsquish to wmbubble! Yeah. I'm so stoked.

This distro can run my compaq armada 1700 PII 233 Mhz 96 Mo 3 Go as none distro or OS can do. fast and beautiful.
I installed it with boot parameters :
lang=fr noacpi nolapic noapic fb=800x600 noscsi noagp

still looking how to configure sound and Realtek 8180L wifi. everyting works great otherwise and with this old computerit's amazing.

better for me to learn how to speak pingoo then take a window by the head.

I got DSL because:
- I wanted to run a portable OS
- I like Linux
- I like Linux
- It does what I need.
