    Re: So You Want to Buy a Computer With Linux Pre-Installed? (Score: 1)

    Well, I’m personally not configent with this type of deal, I always preferred to do the things by myself as long as my confidence with the subject became pretty good. So I have studied to install, configure and choose the tools by myself, becoming from newbie to pretty good user and system administrator. I also joined the Unix knowledge to Linux one to grow up as soon as I could. What I suggest is not to be worry and try yourself to install, from a friend’s Debian CD-ROM, your own system. You need time to learn how to do it, but first note apart some usefull infos about the drives, modules and all the stuff you need and you would like to “reproduce” on the new system. In order to do it, print out the output of the commands (lsmod; ifconfig, if your system is not stand-alone; the version of your favorite application; etc). Consult the Linux newbie reference guide on: (or .com, I don’t remember!)

    Over there you will find pretty good information how to manage in this situations.
