Re: Linux on a Windows XP computer?
I would recommend picking up an internal pci modem -- 3com, usrobotics
and xircom are usually well supported under linux in general (I don't
use modems, so I can't give a more specific recommendation, sorry,) and
for sound a soundblaster.
Remember to disable the on-board devices via the BIOS before installing
and you should be good to go.
The motherboard has integrated video and integrated sound and it has
an Agere Systems PCI Soft Modem . As far as I can tell, video seems
OK in Linux, at least it's there but I'm just comparing it to another
WinXP computer where the video didn't work at all in Linux. Perhaps
someone can enlighten me on this..
.I could use some recommendations about installing a modem that is
more suitable for Linux, an internal PCI.Hardware version or
external (which is preferable, series or USB?) I've been under the
impression that any external modem will work in Linux but the data for
some models.omits Linux in their operability list.
I'd like to have audio but it doesn't have to be super quality----
I'm not a music fanatic so the cheapest sound card would be OK as long
as it works in Linux..
