First Post from New Computer (KWF4)

It lives!

Emily gave me her old desktop, and I have now loaded Linux on it and have yet another usable desktop. It still needs a little work to get the graphics card completely working, but when you do all your work from the terminal, who needs graphics? :-P

Edit: Loaded the Nvidia driver on it and it detected my monitor like a champ. Now I just need to download 250MB of updates to bring it up to snuff (250MB counting not only the operating system, but all the programs that come installed on it: Open Office, Firefox, Bittorrent client, etc etc)
