Well, seems we did a similar same thing the other way round, I to left
fedora on there
but am using centos grub, not that it really matters, thanks for getting
back to me.

Cool, nice to know it was useful

I gathered from the smiley, don't think I took it seriously, :-p

As you know, especialy if you've tried Linpus, it's lacking many things

It is a real shame they make linux so crippled on netbooks, altho the
hardware isn't
the best it actually is better than my old server, (ie, much bigger
also fedora runs smooth enough so way they didn't just stick a proper linux
on there
no one knows, but is a big reason why windows might take over that market,
and that is a shame. hope Intel does something good with Moblin.
Another thought, Windows likes to make things shiny and run slowly, (but
people like it)
Linux could easily outshine windows without losing performance, yet the
linux gui always looks so old, Fedora is getting closer but when looking at
gnome-look and see the designs
it baffles me fedora or centos doesn't have something a bit more funky.

>> wiki stuff:
One last thing, I'm going to see if the Acerfand works in centos, and some
of the other stuff discribed in this guide for fedora:
will let you know what does and doesn't work, it could save on overhead, and
make a very quite server.

I love Buffy to, Season 6 where Willow goes bonkers is definitely my
