    Linux Box

    Hi

    I am going to be doing a lot of programming C on Linux, and using some graphical packages...

    My question, I may run a dual boot system, However since I may not be able to get the net up and running in Linux, I wanted one machine with Linux and the other with Win XP.

    I dont want to go out and get a newsystem, something used, maybe like a 433 or something.

    I would like to run something like KDE or Gnome, what would a pretty Ideal computer be to run linux?

    Thanks

    If you are going to be running GNOME or KDE then the main thing you need is RAM. My main machine used to be a PIII 550 with 320MB of RAM and it ran GNOME and KDE just perfectly. That machine was replaced about a month ago so it will run the latest and greatest from GNOME or KDE.

    howdy,
    my Athlon 750 with 256mb ram works just fine, one thing though watch out for winmodems, linux has a tough time with them.

    M.R.
    I don't like you very much. Please post a lot less.

    No, I know you were joking. My point still stands.
