I've just ordered a Dell notebook computer,
an Inspiron 1000 (looks
like a bargain at $579 after all the rebates, with free shipping). Of
course it comes with WinXP, and of course I want to set it up for dual
boot with Linux (SuSE 9.1 for now, probably).
I installed SuSE 9.2 on an inspiron 8600 with Windows already installed
and the installation worked without any problem.
Are you guys using a network install? Or is there someway to get the cd/dvd
to boot on a lappy? Most I've looked at just can't .. at least the ones
where I could get a look at the bios or boot settings.
I don't want to dual boot, but if I could get the cds/dvd to load from a
windows prompt and run install as per usual, it could save some money ..
well up to $150 which is what most people who sell linux pre-installs want
to put Suse9.2 on it,
If they want $150 for pre-installed SuSE I would shop elsewhere. Sounds
fishy to me.
UNIX since 1989, linux since 1994, SuSE since 1998
