    Do I Dare

    My parents have an old box (150mhz, 32mb RAM) and run Win 98 on it. The box has fubared it self. Windows is in a infinate loop of restarting and AFAICT it can't be fixed without reinstalling the OS. Do I dare trying to sneak Mandrake 8.2 or another 'newbie' distro on the box? I tried one time with problems with the lenmark printer but I didn't really give it very much. Any ideas?

    Give Mandy a shot. Check to make sure that your Lexmark model is supported under cups. Or, look on Lexmark's website for drivers.

    Well, my HP 722C was thought to be a WinPrinter ( and it was on that list ) until Red Hat 7.2 comes around .... So you might was to check the Mandy page as well to see the support or not ........ Except the Scanner ( which happen also to be WinScanner with software emulation and IDE based ), I've none of the hardware that aren't support in Linux ..... Man, Linux have come a long way .....
