Windows screwup forces Ubuntu shift

"Biting back my fervent desire to throw this mess out of a window, get a gun, and go to Redmond..."
"it started out quite simply, a client needed to set up a small branch office, something I do almost every week. Four workstation and a repository for files, occasional backups, and a shared printer is all they would need, nothing special. Five HP 5100s, a printer, a Promise TX2300 with mirrored drives and a DVD-R was all I needed. That was the easy part."
hahaha, isn't it always...
"Those weasels at Captain Junior Spy Central disabled the F6 driver install on their restore CD!"
i really have to applaud the linux community for the viable free OS alternatives. i can see myself getting "happy feet", if i can just find that "special" distro, though in situations which charlie described, many can and do succeed in fitting the bill...

SabayonLinux 3.25 has been released, now with the latest X.Org 7.2, the new Kernel Virtual Machine, Beryl 0.1.4 and other enhancements. From the changelog: "Linux kernel 184.108.40.206; the first live implementation of the new Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) supporting both Intel and AMD architectures; X.Org 7.2 RC3 with better LCD/CRT display detection, improved Intel graphics cards support and more stable ATI open source drivers; new NetworkManager stack that supports many wireless cards; Beryl 0.1.4 with a nearly perfect OpenGL auto-detection and configuration; NVIDIA drivers 1.0-9631 and latest ATI drivers; new Kicker menu picture and better default cursors...."
Haven't tried it yet, but I will soon. Just thought they might have fixed some of the problems you encountered with the last version. Though for everything to work perfectly, it definitely needs a hard drive install.
