I stuck the CD in. It took a couple minutes for it to all mount and load up. And it worked.
You could imagine how ecstatic I was to use a desktop that had more than 16-bit colour again.
Audio worked, I was able to use Kopete (instant messenger) right away. Firefox wasn't automatically installed, but Konqueror (file/web browser) allowed me to view most html.
The system ran pretty well considering it was using the CD and a partial hard drive mount.
Well, I'm already here. If I actually install the thing, I can put Firefox on and permanently tweak some things.
The install goes well. The only thing that took a while was the formatting of my 250GB drive. I didn't partition it.
By the way, it saw all 250GB.
And... it works.
