Default Im joining the ranks

Yesterday the front desk sec. downloaded a virus. I over heard her talking to the boss about what to do so I offered my help. It turned out to be a pretty nasty bug. Additionally, I ran adaware and found the computer to be riddled with all kinds of trash.

When the boss came in I suggested that the best thing to do would be to do a complete reformat since there was an ungodly amount of junk on the system. After thinking about it for a minute he told me to just take the thing cuz he wanted to buy a new computer for the front desk anyways. SWEET.

Its a PIII 500mhz, 96mb ram, 8mb Video Card, 20gb Hard Disk...pretty old, but still capable of doing some stuff...ftp server maybe. Anyways, I got it home and cleaned it out and decided that this was a perfect opportunity to give linux a try.

Ive played around with some of the bootable distros...knoppix comes to mind, but never fully installed linux. Right now im just about finished with ubuntu's installation process and I must say that I am very excited about this whole linux adventure.

I'll let you all know how it goes.
