Out of curiosity, what distro do you guys recommend for a more.. robust system?
I tried Gentoo and much enjoyed it, but it seemed not to get along too well with some of the hardware, particularly the video card.
IWill MPX2 motherboard w/ Dual AMD 2400+'s
Radeon 9800 Pro
180GB HD connected via a controller card
Basic off the self network cards, connected to a Microsoft router
Those are the basic essentials.. It's a gaming workstation, I do a lot of DVD burning and video editing, and file compression, with the dual cpu's, and game with the video card. Linux seemed excellent, so long as I had no problem sacrificing some ease of work and most all my ability to game.. This no longer the situation, or a way around it? Tried this around Jan.. Ah, and XFree86 seems an antiquated way of doing something, even to an untrained observer..
