    RE: Linux for touchscreen
    You can also look into ubuntu which is known to work with most touchscreen devices. Actually any linux OS can be tweaked to work with touchscreen so long it supports the hardware and has the drivers for "event" input. IMHO, stick with any ubuntu/debian based linux distro and you should have little difficulty running linux on you tablet.

    RE: Best way to get started on Linux
    Not sure about the keyboard, but you can definitely use ubuntu for pictures and videos. If you have the system for it, download ubuntu 12.04 and select "install third party software" when the installer starts. In fact, you are better off installing linux mint 10 on your system or if it is powerful enough, linux mint 12. It is based off ubuntu and has all the latest codecs for video and audio processing. You don't have to remove windows XP, just dualboot it with mint and you will have both XP and mint on the same system. That way you can still use your favorite apps.

    RE: Link 2 computers by wifi with httpd allows only one way trafic
    Hello nake, I was just reading the tutorial you linked to. The information is very technical. From what you posted, it looks like your Wifi-card has a static address(wlan0 129.168.127.XXX) which is not in the same network as your AP(192.168.128.1). Could you run "ifconfig" on both systems and post the output of the command?
