"Recently, I was given the chance to get my hands on a brand
new Dell Inspiron 4000. Can you guess what the first thing I did
was? If you guessed, "Format that filthy Windows partition and
install Linux on that baby!" then you are dead right. The
contents of this review is a detailed synopsis of my experience
with Linux on the Dell Inspiron 4000 C600GT laptop, how compatible
it was as a whole, as well as my general thoughts on it...."
"My first attempt at an installation was with my current desktop
distribution of RedHat 6.2. Since I already had the 6.2 CD lying
around I used it as my first OS attempt."
"I first swapped the CDROM into the drive bay, I then hopped
into the bios and made sure the CDROM was set to boot (it wasn't
set by default). I then put the RH 6.2 CD into the drive and off I
went. The install process begins and as usual, and I expect to see
that nice Anaconda GUI install interface. Low and behold, I receive
an Xserver error and I get stuck in the old text-based install.
This was no problem; I've tackled RH installs back as far as 5.0 so
this is no sweat. I continue on."
