My housemate was getting pretty cross with me for constantly saying
'cool!' throughout the install, so nice work there. ;-p
I can't actually remember what video card I'm using in this machine, but I
just ticked the 'Install Everything' box, so the drivers should be there.
It's my test server (a Dell PE 1300) and it's just using the on-board
video. I think it's an nVidea chip. Possibly a TNT or something.
I'll give the recovery disc a pop later to see if that's it, but how long
do you think until 1.4's available?
I gave KnoppMyth a go and couldn't get it to even start the installer (or
the live bit) so I gave up on that. I've had SLES9 running on it for a
few weeks, though, and before that it had W2K3 on it, so I know the h/w's
Thanks for your comments and the good job on the OS. I look forward to
