Home - Linux

This page contains a collection of things that may be of use to you, particular if you use RedHat Linux (7.3).

I have a dual boot Dell Inspiron 8000 running Windows 2000 and RedHat 7.3. I have a Swann USB V.90 modem (doesn't work in linux) and a D-Link DFM-560E. I want to get an Epson Stylus C80. I am in Australia.

I just started these pages, so about half of the information is incomplete.

    The information provided within these pages is provided AS IS, and without any warranty. Following these directions may (but not limited to) crash your computer, delete all the information on your hard disk, open up security holes or cause your house to burn down. I made these pages to provide some information about the setup that I have done, but I did not proofread it for correctness, and in most cases did not test it. There are commands in these pages that would definately delete or corrupt all the data on your computer (especially the dualboot section). In fact it happened to me.... So you are on your own!
