Installing Knoppix

Filed under
HowTos

Recently for some reason I thought about trying to get some more use out of an ancient notebook. Almost 8 years old, with only 64 MB of memory and 4 GB of hard drive and a slow CPU -- in this day and age, anyhow: AMD-K6 475 -- it hasn't seen much use of late. On the other hand, Knoppix has been really impressive the last couple of years, including excellent hardware-recognition. Ought to be a snap to install it, particularly on something this old.

The sales representative at the Cingular store suggested that I might like the Blackberry 8700.
