New Laptop

My new/used laptop is up and running (albeit a little slowly until I can get another stick of memory). Through the kindness of a friend (Thanks O) who knows more than I ever will about Thinkpads I now have Fedora 4 installed. I'm quite exited about learning a new OS, I'm not so exited that I'm going to hear "that's not supported" more often. For instance I just talked to the roadrunner people and they tell me if it's not Windows or Mac I can't get my e-mail, I then talk to a computer guy here at work and he tells me that they are full of it. Unfortunately I am woefully inadequate in the hardware/networking/connectivity department so we shall see if I can get my laptop to connect via the cable modem at home. All and all I'm very pleased with my new toy, once I get a bigger hardrive I will probably partition it and eventually pay the bucks for the Windows OS (I just have to get the upgrade since the laptop comes with a sticker), but I think I will also keep the Linnux. So my shopping list in order of importance is:

256MB Ram
60Gig Hardrive
CD-ROM RW
256MB Ram (I can fit two)
Wireless Network Card
Wireless Hub to Network the PC and the Laptop

Now that my husband's hair is standing up I can go back to work ;-)
