program really walks you through everything. The maximum install is only
300megs compared to the 1gig that is sitting on the RedHat 6.0 disc. You
can't choose anything apart from the packages to install. Start-up processes
are defaulted to everything and kde is installed as default.
X didn't work right for me (it never does, i have a terrible graphics card
(SiS 6202 which isn't directly supported)). In fact it damn right froze
everytime i tried to use it. When i logged in thu the console (provided in a
lilo replaced gui) i noticed the shell had been messed around with. Things
weren't werking the way they were supposed to. Commands weren't registering
etc. Man pages were missing and a whole host of other problems emerged.
I saw this dist as being wayy too basic. I mean RedHat is simple enough and
walks you through everything but this was ridiculous. It is simpler to
install than any other OS i have encountered and you are left to put your
life in the hands of the designersmuch more than any thing else. At least
with Windows you can slightly alter what happens.
