    "You know the Windows method, where stuff just works? Yeah. They chose that method."

Bah, the only "upgrade" worse than XFree 4 is Linux 2.4.0 "stable". All new software just hates my computer :)

linux 2.4 seems to either work magical or puke over everything. i'm glad it worked magical for me. :)

I tried a few times to get 2.4.0 to work for me, with no luck. I'm sure I'm just putting in something I shouldn't, or the other way around.. Just need to figure out what that one thing is.

First time I tried it hung at checking my swap partition, then all other tries would hang after LILO's checks. (Which I presume means that it would start to load the kernel image, then hang)

Stoopid leenucks. ;)
