The potato uses VESA framebuffer to start with (hence the neat penguin
logo).  I expect that all x86 video cards support the VESA standard.
Once you've installed your system, the kernel will use VGA (text-only)
unless you configure it to use a framebuffer.  When you get around to
configuring X you can deal with what the video hardware really can do.

I've never seen a BIOS that cared about modems.  Just don't both
trying to do anything with it in linux.  It won't hurt anything.

The laptop I have at work looks like this :

    Name        Flags      Part Type  FS Type          [Label]        Size (MB)
    hda1                    Primary   Linux ext2                          23.23
    hda2        Boot        Primary   Win95 FAT32                       3003.68
    hda5                    Logical   Linux swap                         201.28
    hda4                    Primary   Linux ext2                       14910.02

/dev/hda4  =>  /  
/dev/hda1  =>  /boot  
/dev/hda5  =>  <swap>
/dev/hda2  =>  /mnt/windows

(win2k is the other system)

Winblows is the only system that cares which partition it is on.
Linux doesn't care -- if the boot loader can reach the kernel, it is

| 3) So now I have PS2 KB. What will XP think?

No problem.  PS/2 is standard/default.  In theory at least, you can
have both PS/2 and USB connected simultaneously.  Linux can handle it
great, I've heard of 'doze crashing if you have multiple mice!

| And thanks for straightening me out there........

no problem.



If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his
cross and follow me.  For whoever wants to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it.  What
good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?  Or
what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
