UPDATE for my Dell D600
Hello everyone, I decided I had better get all the spec's for my dell latitude d600 and post them to see what linix os I can use. I use my laptop for personal and business use for my Ham Radio events, such as skywarn and emergency communications.
So here are my spec's
Dell latitude D600 model PP05L
40GB internal hard drive
ATI Radeon 9000 32mb video memory
Pentium M 1.80 ghz/600mhz
intel wireless card
512mb memory at 266mhz
level 2 cache 2048kb
56k data fax modem internal
2 usb ports, vga port, rs 232 port
onboard Ethernet controller.
I don't understand the distro's if they are separate of an os or not. I do however plan on upgrading my system. Thanks everyone I just don't like windows xp so I'll be doing a fresh install of the os. Thanks
