    RE: Should I Try Fedora?
    Thank for reminding me that Fedora 11 is going to be released very soon. I'd want to try it, too. :) I had an ISO for Fedora 10, and it actually looks very nice. I am using KDE, though, so I have not yet really tried Fedora with GNOME. Anyway, I find it strange that openSUSE would do that to your Ubuntu installation. The same as the poster before, me I have not tried installing them in one hard drive, but then again, I have not yet tried installing two linuxes in one system. openSUSE is also nice, though. It looks clean and green. :)

    RE: Games You Play under wine ! ! !
    I play Starcraft on Wine. I bought the battlechest in anticipation of Starcraft II. Yeah, I'm actually buying original copies, right! :D I just feel a sense of realness to the product that I'm holding if it's coming from the source. Yep, as a developer I do like to support developers, although publishers get most of the cut, I think. :angry: Anyway, back to Wine: It seems to be a great project to work on, as there are a lot of games that people want to see running there.

    RE: Penguspy
    Wow, this is nice! I have not realized that there are a lot more good games in Linux than I expected. I'll be visiting this site more often, thanks! :laugh: I think it would also be great to have a podcast to go with this thing. I know that might be getting into the mold of certain gaming sites like IGN.com and Gamespy, but it would probably also be an excellent medium to attract more attention to the site. Just an idea. :P

    RE: Quick Question............
    Well, there's the 2disc Xwindow Embedded Linux. I believe it is referring to floppy discs. Some of the tools are proprietary, though. I am not sure if that will be a problem for you, but here is the link anyway. :) http://www.angelfire.com/linux/floorzat/2diskXwin.htm And then there's Timon Linux from Argentina. Good luck with working on the site, though. The download pages are not in English, but that is no problem if you can figure it out. http://www.linuxtimon.com.ar/ There is also this link that might help you with working with Linux distros that do not necessarily run on CDs. I have yet to try this on my own old desktop. :) I also have a desktop that still has a floppy drive. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic100615.html

    RE: Need some good distro ideas
    You could also use Puppy Linux. It is very lightweight, also I believe it also uses the Xfce windowing system, so it is not as heavy on resources. Slax only requires very little storage space. But I have not tried installing it on a hard drive, though. It's based on Slackware. http://www.puppylinux.org http://www.slax.org Hope that helps
