Re: RH 7.2 on 4100
- AS for RH 7.2
The main unit is OK, bus, memory etc.
Graphics - ATI Mobility Radeon, this create no problems, but require a
little more tweaking that previous ATI models. But, its still ATI -
one of most Linux-friendly stuff around.
Network - no serious reported problems.
CD/DVD/CD-RW are all reported to work properly.
Internal Modem - I do not own 4100, but from this group I learned that
Dell uses Modem/NIC combos with diffrent modem chips.
If its Lucent chip (Actiontec combo) then OK - its supported in Linux.
If it is PCTel chip then it is generally supported, but in kind of
strange way and no 100% guarantee that it will work in your
If the chip is from 3Com - then no driver for Linux at the moment.
In any case modem will probably require at least additional driver
www.linmodems.org is good place to start investigation.
