I work on the basis of whatever works for you is an appropriate choice, and whatever works best for you is the best choice.

I noticed.

I use different distros for different jobs, because there is no single distro that offers everything.

Except debian.

JK I have fedora and ubuntu on my system also.

OP- You could just get a live CD version and try it out to see if you like it.

What do you have against me?
So what if we have different views on things? I just don't get it.

Default Re: first computer


this is the workstation i have setup, (the elephants headphones are the speakers)


this is the case opened on the floor


here are the slots on the motherboard



the graphics card i bought


close up on the slots

what interface are those? they fit in the AGP but only backwards


ps, i had ophcrack on a bootabe usb and i stuck it in and it turns out ophcrack also comes with Slitaz (a linux os i think) so i'm going to go on the internet using that and install what ever version of linux u guys recommend, only the problem is that i learned today the phone jack in my room dosent work, so we'll have to have a guy that lives down the street come fix it

if i do this how do i choose which one to boot from? when you say dual boot, do you mean, have both booted at the same time, or choose which one boots in the begining.

whats the difference's between debian, ubuntu, fedora, and mint???? (foothead dont say debian pwnz all the other ones)

edit: anyone??

Looks like PCI card to me. It sure doesn't look like an AGP card. And whatever you do, I don't care if it fits in there backwards or not, don't turn it on with it in the AGP slot backwards. Obviously there's something wrong if that's the case. Are you sure you didn't just try putting a little force on it when putting in the PCI slot? I just got a few brand new PCI cards and it took quite a bit to get them in.

That card is NOT PCI.
I can honestly say that I have no idea what slot it is, but I can tell you that ATI rage is a MACINTOSH card. It will not work in your desktop.

Dual boot is referring to a boot menu.
When the computer turns on, it will give you an option of which OS to boot into.

It could be hyper-threading.
