Just trying the minbantu install. Booting off the CD (which is painfully slow but hopefully needn't happen again any time soon) it was immediately able to use the wireless connection, detect my network, and connect to the network drive. I'm wiping the hard disk and installing it as the OS.

And when that's done I have the fun of trying to install the network printer, the fonts I want, etc. etc.

Wish me luck..

In other news my Jornada is now on £24 with 12.45 hours to go. Hopefully it will go a lot higher, or someone will get a real bargain. But I really can't justify keeping it with two other laptops and a PDA around...

Later Colour me VERY impressed - printer installation was completely painless. And if I can stop my modem (or more likely NTL) from flaking out every few minutes I will try to get patches etc. sorted.

And just after 2 AM I have everything updated, fonts working (via a program called Fonty Python), and it's time to head for bed. Tomorrow I might try doing some actual work with it, the horror!!!

BTW, autopope tells me you can get them to run Mac OS-X. I'm horribly tempted, but I think I'll stick with Linux for now.
