Red Hat I keep reading all these tales of woe of people having bad experiences with Linux. Sure, I've had my own bad experiences, across many an OS, but just lately I've been running a Red Hat Linux 9 desktop full-time at home and have yet to run into any major issue. What follows is an overview of my personal experiences with Linux. But first, a bit about me.

It's just a mounting problem. I don't know about RH, but I had the same problems with Mandrake... In Mandrake it was a simple login to Mandrake Control Center.... And Mount Points...

I loaded Mandrake on Sunday. Despite a couple of problems, it was VEY simple to load about everything...

Once URPMI was set up, I've found ttp://rpms.mandrakeclub.com/rpms/mandrake/9.1/contrib/i586/ByName.html and have been like a kid in the free candy store. I have found that I don't NEED powerpack even though I will get it. I WILL support my distro... I also spent the $60 for MandrakeClub. WELL worth it...

urpmi this and rpm that....

This is what I dreamed of when I dumped Winblows 38 months ago....

My wishlist for Linux is just about gone now! If it exists anymore!
