How much i spend

Well i would have to say over $500 atleast each year or really how much over the years it's averaged out to ut am sure over $1,000 this last year but i think since technolgogy changes so frequently it forces us to pay even more well thats just my input.

loading to small harddrive

Thankyou Tux, you really hit the spot in all three issues.
I bought both Knoppix ( which I use on an olde 1Gb dinosaur ), and Morphix ( which works on my olde 6Gb Laptop ) for $ 4.50 from Dick Smith Electronics. I have two problems. 1st, I can't seem to connect onto the net with either distro. Can't figure out how to do it on one ( maybe someone could hold my hand in easy, newbie steps ), and pcmcia modem recognition problem on the other. The 2nd problem is I want to load Linux onto either ( or both ) hard drive but am limited in memory capacity. The desktop has 1Gb when I ( hee, hee ) totally erase the other OS, and the Laptop has about 1Gb to spare if I partition. I've looked at 'DammSmallLinux', 'FeatherLinux', 'BonzaiLinux' and other small distros. Please help me pick a good one, and get it permanently into my hdd.

A solution for he/she who's HDDs are small.

It's a lightweight distro that, unlike DamnSmallLinux and Feather Linux, actually has almost all the software you could possibly need to start with, maybe not what's being shown off in TUX, but you can always add that later.

...and it has a modem configuration tool in the K menu, I'm not sure if any other KDE based distros do, but this one is well worth checking out.

I don't know if you can buy it on CDs, but it's under 200mb, so downloading is an option, even on dial up (use the torrents).

My wife's new washer and drye

My wife's new washer and dryer falls into the same category as my new PC. The old one worked well but the $5.00 belt broke so we had to get a new matched pair to replace the old one. what's good for the goose......

  • Upgrade to a gig of RAM in my Linux box - $50
  • Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine (Does this count? I mean... caffiene is a geek's favorite tool) - $500.
