Hi - Has anyone had experience with this HP? I'm thinking of buying a used
one for $800; it comes with DVD etc.

Also, do you know if it's possible to install linux on this?

Thanks for any advice -

I recently received an Axil 245 with Solaris 7 on it. The computer didn't
come with a monitor (I checked it out on one, however), and has a 13W3
connector on the back.

Has anyone had experience writing this (or a related) machine to a PC
monitor? Does the conversion work? Can anyone advise me on where to by the
connectors?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Anyone know about a Cortley Guitar from the 1960s or 70s? Nylon acoustic,
spruce top, seems fairly good - trying to find out some history/details.
The label says distributed by Maxwell Mayers in Texas and Soutland Musical
Merchandise Corp. in North Carolina.

Thanks, Alan

Subject: SuSE 7.2 on Dell Inspiron 8000

User-Agent: tin/1.4.5-20010409 ("One More Nightmare") (UNIX) (NetBSD/1.5.1
(i386))

I'm trying to install SuSE 7.2 (through Yast2) on a Dell laptop - Inspiron
8000 - and I'm having no luck setting the monitor screen for XWindow or
any graphics at all - has anyone solved this problem? The partitions are
fine, and I can run in minimal command-line mode, but nothing else. I've
tried the LED and other generic monitor configurations and I get garbage,
if anything.

The screen is either TFT or active matrix; the display is 1400x1050x60Hz,
NVIDIA GeForce2Go (Dell Mobile)

Any help here would be greatly appreciated -
