You should be able to run ubuntu with that system... Although your RAM is a little low... Xubuntu maybe better.

Yes Linux can be a little more tidious to setup... but it offers much more flexibily on what you can do with your PC. If you just want to get Linux up and running to try out... then why not use a Live CD. The new version of Ubuntu allows you to use Linux from a CD without installing it on the hard drive.

If you want to install Linux on your Hard drive. Then this may be of some help:

It seems that if you use the System Rescue CD you may be able to repartition your NTFS partition.

This all depends what you want to do. If you just want a command prompt (bash)... then a 486 with 32 MB of RAM will do.

If you want to run a desktop system on an old machine maybe Puppy linux is more for you:

CPU : Pentium 166MMX
RAM : 128 MB physical RAM for releases since version 1.0.2 or failing that a Linux swap file and/or swap partition is required for all included applications to run; 64 MB for releases previous to 1.0.2
Hard Drive : None
CDROM : 20x and up


You could give xubuntu a try... it's a little lighter than ubuntu:

RAM: 196 MB
CPU: PII 300 MHz


As for resizing your partition... If it's NTFS then you will have to repartition your drive and reinstal XP.
I would reserver minimum 4-6 GB for Linux if you are installing desktop.

If you purchased a liscense for you Redhat EL 4. Then all you need to do is type this at a command prompt:

up2date -i ghostscript

Sorry for taking a bit to reply... been busy.

I would recommend that you download the i386. This way hear it will work no matter what. Also with the 64bit verion, there are certain things that don't work... such as flash.
6  Software Support / Operating Systems : Linux / Unix / Re: Ubuntu Linux - Please help me on: August 03, 2006, 07:00:17 PM
OK... so Ubuntu is now longer on your system. If you are using an install cd ... and booting from the CD rom and Ubuntu is coming up... Then I would say that you have the wrong image on the CD.

Debian and Ubuntu are very similar... If Ubuntu gets a kernel panic on install there is  a good chance that Debian will as well.

I would redownload the iso image for Debian and reburn the iso to CD.
7  Software Support / Operating Systems : Linux / Unix / Re: Ubuntu Linux - Please help me on: August 03, 2006, 06:26:56 PM
When you say you ran Debian from ISO on disk... do you mean a CD? or a hard drive?

Are you able to boot into windows XP?
8  Software Support / Operating Systems : Linux / Unix / Re: Ubuntu Linux - Please help me on: August 03, 2006, 02:42:56 AM
By formatting your entire hard drive and reinsatlling Windows XP, this should of gotten rid on Ubuntu and Debian. By reinstalling Windows XP should allow you to boot into XP.

If this is not the case... could you post the error that you are getting?
9  Software Support / Operating Systems : Linux / Unix / Re: Ubuntu Linux - Please help me on: August 03, 2006, 12:44:22 AM
When you installed Ubuntu, it over wrote your Master Boot Record (MBR) wich is sector 0 on your hard drive. If you had windows installed before you installed Ubuntu, you should of been able to dual boot (either into Ubuntu or Windows), Ubuntu being the default.

When your computer start to boot up, you should see Grub installed appear quickly on the screen (just after the bios screen). When you see the Grub installed message, hit the esc key. This should bring you to a menu allowing to select Ubuntu or Windows to boot.

Now you mentioned that you reinstalled windows. This should of overwirten your Master Boot Record (MBR) allowing you to boot into windows. I am suprised that you are not booting into windows.

Anyhow... Try hitting the esc key when you see Grub apearing on your screen... this should allow you to boot into windows.

Hope this helps.

Redhat 9.0 is a little outdated... Have you considered going to a newer version? It might have the driver for your video card.

The "free" version of redhat is now called fedora.
11  Software Support / Operating Systems : Linux / Unix / Re: rpm could not installed (part 2 ) on: September 21, 2005, 01:55:25 PM
Please try and keep your post in one Topic. You should of posted this message in you last post under my reply. It make it easier for people to follow the discussion that is going on.

I found this version of ayttm for Mandriva 10.2.

http://www.klid.dk/sw/mandriva/10.2/media/contrib/ayttm-0.4.6-3mdk.i586.rpm

See if this one works.
12  Software Support / Operating Systems : Linux / Unix / Re: rmp could not installed on: September 19, 2005, 05:04:48 PM
Ah, yes... the famous rpm dependancies. Basically you have the wrong rpm package for mandrake.

An rpm package is basically a compiled package for a particular Distrubion and that particular version of the distrubition. You have to use packages for Mandriva edition 2005. You can't use rpm packages say from Fedora. They are not compatible.

Mandriva use to be Mandrake... You could give this package a try and see if it works.

13  Software Support / Operating Systems : Linux / Unix / Re: lan network browsing!!! on: September 17, 2005, 02:41:59 PM
I am assuming that you want to access a windows share from your Mandrake Linux box. If so then you can use this:
LinNeighborhood, a great tool for providing access to directories and files that reside on other computers on your LAN. However, LinNeighborhood is not installed as part of the default selection of packages installed when you first install Mandriva. Thus it takes just a little more effort to get LinNeighborhood up and running than it takes to use SMB4K in Mandriva Linux.

More info on smb4 can be found http://www.linuxelectrons.com/article.php/20040406050839456

Hi Rex,

Sorry for taking so long to reply... Better late than never I guess. I've never setup a webcam in linux.

But I would take a look at http://ayttm.sourceforge.net It's suppose to have Yahoo Webcam viewing support.
