Ironic you should mention SimplyMEPIS. When I could not get my SuSE 10.2 to
boot - and the install DVD seems to have a problem too ... I pulled out that HD
and put back in my SM6.0 HD... that is how I am back online without delay. SM
is the distro that finally convinced me that linux can work on the desktop
without a lot of hassle. I have been going back to SuSE each time there is a
new release since 8.x. When I get some free time I will put the SuSE HD back
and try to fix it - or reinstall for the Nth. (At least I have been able to
get it to install, finally.)
