Today Windows 2000 crashed because it disliked some printer drivers I installed. I fdisked, installed RedHat, the install went smooth and fine, I rebooted and bam! It detected my cdrw, nic, etc, within a few minutes I burned a cd, was surfing the net, and had fluxbox installed. I'm giving away all my windows software to a friend I will only use Windows if I'm paid from now on. I have Slackware on another box and plan to install Mandrake on my brothers PC he is buying in a few weeks. Now I have a few questions. What do I need to play .avi files? and what is the best burning software to backup mp3s?
