Hi All,

With the help of those on this list I have moved my laptop from Win98,
temorarily to RH 7, and this weekend to SUSE 7.1.

I will probably have to purchase a comercial emulator to make MYOB run as my
accountant needs to receive my information in that format, but I have got my
printer soundcard, dial in, PCMCIA network card all working.

My next goal is to get my PCMCIA HP M820 CD burner working, but I remember a
post on that a few months ago. Sitting back watching the kind of support
from this list over the space of a few months helped me decide which version
of Linux to go for. My attempts at using RH have made me appreciate SUSE
even more.

I was dual booting for some time but no more, I just dont have the need.

Thanks to all
