    Sabayon Linux, Gentoo for Dummies ?

    Sabayon Linux is a live DVD designed to transform a computer into a powerful Gentoo Linux system in less than 5 minutes. Gentoo Linux is a Linux distribution powered by a software install manager engine called "Portage". Besides functioning as a live DVD, Sabayon Linux can also be installed on a hard disk, acting effectively as an easy-to-use Gentoo installation disk.

    RiK - try these links for some tips, etc:

    http://xtronics.com/reference/SATA-R...n-for-2.6.html
    http://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubu...er/014480.html
    http://www.linux-sxs.org/hardware/raid_for_idiots.html

    You might have to abandon a HW RAID and do a SW RAID instead. I haven't hade much luck with Ubuntu on RAID either.

    Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig

    Ok, the LiveDVD works fine...but I can't get it to install on the HD.....from reports on the net I'm not the only one

    Working with the LiveDVD for a day I don't see anything that would make me switch from PCLinuxOS or SUSE 10.1

    What's "Ubuntu "

    Yes, except for backing up protected DVD's (don't know of any AnyDVD app's for Linux) I haven't used Win XP since This day

    PCLinuxOS works real good and easy
