I use xcdroast, and when you do a root setup configuration you can adjust the speed the read and write functions perform at. So it will try to work at those speeds if the hardware will let it, of course you can damage your hardware if it is not capable.

I know Redhat can get really finicky about the passwords you use and it will reject anything it deems too simple, I don't know if it will error message this and ignore the password in the useradd command. I know that in password you get warnings that it is too simple. Does useradd automatically reje...

Ouch... I have an AMD 450 and it takes seconds to bring up mozilla. I'd suggest having a look at your network card configurations, although that doesn't seem to make sense, as far as I know mozilla doesn't rely on the hardware to start up. But I think I had something similar beause I had a network c...

So it appears. It is a shame, I really like mozilla over and above phoenix. What annoys me is all those extra features are going to be lost. Still I heard of a browser project the other day that was depending on using mozilla for it's basis, It does not look like that browser supports open source so...

There is a review available here which should help a bit. You will have to wait for NVIDA drivers, again there is no MP3 support, you will have to install that yourself (again). and there is improved support for laptop chipsets. The opinion expressed by the reviewer is that upgrading is not a real r...

Hey Bazoukas, If the tutor in question really values your input in this then you should make it clear that you want to work with Linux, that working with M$ Windows is too easy, and you can do that easily, you want to learn something, not rehash old stuff. Extra currilcular activities are a chance t...

I disagree. I think it looks rather good. It says it is not a Linux prep course, but what they offer to teach plus some little reading could save a newbie hours of fun(?) and be a good intro for someone who only has to use it in the work environment. An easy way to get people familiar and not scared...
