I've been 'here' off and on... mostly off, since 2004. Way way back when vector was at 4.6.

I have a Cr-48. I flashed the bios so I could do whatever I like with it. I'm going to see how Vector runs on the thing.

I'll keep everyone posted on the results.

Well, had to turn off efi boot but VL6 is sitting pretty. However I"m wanting to try 7 since it's supposed to have features to help with a SSD. That is the main reason I haven't really tried getting sound working (everything acts like it works... but no sound comes out.)

...that and in spite of a respectible glxgears reading, attempting to run what I want to run is hurky jurky slow.

Anyone know how to get unetbootin working? I'm going tomorrow to a higher bandwidth location to grab the appropriate ISO and I want to try installing it there, rather than shuttle it back here and wait a few more days before I can get updates and whatever.
