Win2000 Installation. User Comments:
The install was a breeze.
The system is up and running and seems stable. Windows 2000 identified
& automatically supplied drivers for audio,
video, CD, and even my "DATport"
(an external USB audio device I have).
The OS consumed 760 MB!
I hope someone soon will supply some sort of "2000Lite" utility, or publish
a list of files you can safely delete.
Touchpad drivers were not
installed; the control panel identifies the mouse as "Microsoft PS2." The
touchpad mouse cursor works fine, and so does the "tap-tap" double-click.
But the horizontal- and vertical-scroll features are not there.
Have yet to try DVD movies.
Also I will be trying LS-120s soon...

Magic & BootMagic.

software, 6 discs total.
--Not optimized for Pentium,
will run on a 486
I figured the optimization
might be very minor for all I know. For all I know it's only a compile
switch and I could recompile that way myself. And I already have Partition
Magic, so I went for SuSE with the extra Linux sw.
