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.

Well, I hope you read this:
1) CD-burner+Linux: In all Linux distributions you must full the kernel that your cd-burner is a scsi device. This means it will access it probably trough /dev/scd0 or another scd device if the burner is not master. If you use LILO you accomplish this by typing in lilo.conf "hdc=ide-scsi" or whatever device the writer is. This will point it to scd0 or another scd device.
2) Apache: Try getting the src.rpms for Apache 1.3.x from RH 8 will the sources for dependencies it needs. Make a rpmbuild --rebuild for each of them, uninstall Apache 2 and install Apache 1.3.x. That would be it, its not so hard....
3) The review: It was a nice review, and I enjoy using Linux 2:)
