I first tried vector linux last october when i d/l the standard edition . At the time, was looking for alternatives
to no longer supported win 98 and winme.The first install was on a p4 computer, not a laptop.
The only problem i encountered was screen resolution ...refresh rates were wrong for a crt.
A quick search on google found the answer, somewhere in this forum.
I started out with Dos , so i am not afraid of occasional command line computing.
Okay, recently i have run out of hard disk space on my main computer, which is a dual-boot
WinMe and WinXP . Since ME is no longer supported byM$ , i want to go with VectorLinux Soho final and XP>
I tried some other Linux distros, but Vector is going to be sufficient for my needs .
Basic needs will be websurfing, occasional picture editing , and sharing files with XP via a
The setup will be:
Intel D865GLC socket 478 motherboard,
1.5 GB DDR ram,
WD 250GB eide HD ,
Radeon 9250 256MB 8x AGP video,
17" NEC MultiSync XE17 monitor (only has 3 video modes:640x480,600x800,and1024x768?)
SB Audigy value soundcard,
Tosh 16x DVD-ROM,
Lite-On 16x DVD-RW.
This is a home built computer, and its worked great for over a year now.I am the builder,BTW.
I want to make a 60 GB partition for VectorLinux SOHO,
100GB Fat32 (for sharing documents,etc)
and the rest of disk space for XP .
Simple question - Is a 60GB partition okay ?
Would there be any known problems with sound or video ?
Like said, all it needs to do is surf the internet with firefox, and some picture viewing/editing .
I'm short on time right now, so i will just post this up and see if any responses later.
