Hello all,
I built a new pc.
Abit IP-35E
E2180
1x2GB 800Mhz Transcend
XFX-8500GT 512Ram

Since my old rig was host to 2 linuxes FC7 and Ubuntu 7.10
I was a bit anxious in getting linux to work.
I had to live distros
Kubuntu 6.06...........did not work.........I didn't expect it to.
Knoppix 5.1............surprising.........but possible.
I burnt a Mandriva2008.1 CD from Digit DVD and tried it,
Pleasant surprise everything works.
Gone are the bad old days.......no driver problems!
regards,
Ranjit.
