Re: [linux-dell-laptops] Setting Up A New HD - Swap
- I just used a knoppix disk to shrink the XP partition and then installed sarge,
since it was preinstalled. 2.8.1 did not like the centrino or broadcom nics, so I
used a sarge disk which worked with the broadcom nic which allowed me to download
the ipw2200 driver. The suspend to disk for XP seems to work fine, unless it was
doing a suspend to RAM, but then I don't use XP much. :)
