Linux Hints & Tips

First things first:

We are always ready for a demo/workshop on Linux installation. 
Feel free to bring your hardware for installation to our meetings anytime.

What you will need:

Your PC (If it is a Windows XP machine then it is the perfect candidate. What exact hardware you have will determine the best distro.)

Adequate hard disk space: 10gb for the operating system in most cases plus room to grow.

RAM should be 512mb or more but we'll have distros that need a whole lot less.

Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse and your cables for power and monitor communications.

You can bring printers / scanners or whatever you think may have installation issues.

If dual booting, better to have Windows installed first.
