on my geforce 4200 box, im using win2k sp2 with a dual boot of win98se to fall back on

since i upgraded fully to win2k i dont think ill ever go back to win98se even tho its my fallback OS and that its been my most used operating system since 1997 when it was still in beta not even first edition yet hehe


on my other box, im using mandrake 8.1 with a dual boot of win98se to fall back on

Yeah, XP, and RH Linux 7.3 on a dual boot.
Just toying with Linux tho, but it's been fun so far, I just have to fix the no-sound with the Audigy thing, but I'm too much of a n00b to even attempt it...

I'm gonna try out Linux at some point, is it kind of a shock using it after so long using windows?

Not really, if I know I'm coming on the puter just to surf, chat, and email, I'll use Linux more to get used to it.
Things are in different spots, that's all.
I'm just not good at installing drivers, that's what keeping me from using it more...
