Best way to find out is to download a live CD. If you're planning on running Debian, using the Ubuntu Live CD should demonstrate whether current Debian works on your system.

It may not auto-configure all devices in Live CD - don't be surprised if you find that USB headset or WIFI card doesn't work on boot - but at least it will give you a clear idea of whether the system works or not on your machine.

Ubuntu's 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is reported to boot on the e200 in Live CD mode; you need to use "safe" graphics mode to do the install (after which you can install the correct video drivers).

Enjoy your new OS!

    If Ubuntu works, then you can always grab a Debian install CD and install that as well.

    I've used Debian since about 98 or 99, but happily use Ubuntu as well now. Enjoy!

I installed linux on my msil2100 and i cant get my wireless internet card to work and my camer to work


Linux does not always have drivers for these types of devices. Your best bet is to either search for these drivers individually, or to go to a different Linux Distribution (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Puppy Linux, Debian, etc...) Also, make sure that your current version is updated (Apt-get update and Apt-get upgrade are great commands!)

No money


What is the problem??? if you dont have money to buy Windoze try installing LINUX it's free... and much better!!! (Ubuntu, "Linux Mint my personal favorit", Debian, Kubuntu, etc...) you have the choice of one expencive Windoze or hundreds of free Linux distributions... just download the ISO of your choice than burn it to a CD and try it (without disturbing what ever is on your system) than choose your FLAVOUR than install it... as simple as that!!! if you have some microsoft speciallized software you just have to install VIRTUALBOX and install a copy of Windoze in the VIRTUALBOX to run what ever you need... It's an other world completely but it's worth learning it...

What are the issues about Linux Operating System


There are MANY Linux operating systems. The main ones known are Ubuntu, Fedora, PC Linux OS, OpenSUSE, Cent OS, Linux Mint and Debian.

Debian is the mother or what Ubuntu and Linux Mint is built from. Debian is considered to be stable. Ubuntu is also supposed to be stable as is Linux Mint. The advantage of these two are ease of use. Debian, Linux Mint and Ubuntu are using .deb packages for applications to be installed.

OpenSUSE uses .rpm packages. It is also considered as stable, but not as widely used as Debian (and the other two) CentOS and Fedora.

CentOS is mainly used for Server purposes. However, in the installation, there are many types of installation options, including Desktop. CentOS is based on the Enterprise version of Red Hat. This is what mainly more and more websites are running off of as it is extremely STABLE and FAST!! So Cent OS is the free EXACT version of Red Hat. Fedora, is the test bed for Red Hat , carrying the LATEST technology being made available to anyone for free.


ALL of these operating systems, except Red Hat, are for FREE. All applications are for FREE. Just to let you know, Google also is using a Linux version for their phones now as well called Android, which you can also acquire for FREE.

The only disadvantage that used to exists until recent is that you could not play all the latest and greatest games on Linux. Now with Steam, you can play anything.

There is a myth that you could not install Windows applications on Linux. You can use Wine on Linux to install Microsoft Windows Applications. If you are having a problem, you are probably missing some files for wine to make it work properly.

Linux is also being used in cars. Check out Toyota and Mercedes Benz that is using Ubuntu. Linux is big and amazing.

Hope that answers your questions.

How we can install Linux ? please easy method write down here


Just download and install any lightweight Linux distribution, and then write it to a CD or DVD with a CD writer program. If you don't have one and use Windows, you should try ImgBurn.

Some Linux distributions that should run well on this laptop are:

How to download and install apache on linux5


Hi Follow the below procedures.
How to install and start the Apache or httpd service under Linux

by Milind

Q. How do I install and start the Apache or httpd web server under Fedora core or Cent OS?

A. Apache HTTP Server is a free software/open source web server for Unix-like systems and other oses.

Apache features configurable error messages, DBMS-based authentication databases, and content negotiation. It is also supported by several graphical user interfaces (GUIs) which permit easier, more intuitive configuration of the server.

Use rpm command to install Apache under Linux. You can also use up2date or yum command to install the same.
Task: Install Apache/httpd under Fedroa Core/Cent OS Linux

Type the following command if you are using Fedora or Cent OS Linux:

# yum install httpd
Now, start the Apache/httpd
# chkconfig httpd on
# /etc/init.d/httpd start
Task: Install Apache/httpd under Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Type the following command
# up2date httpd
Start the Apache/httpd
# chkconfig httpd on
# /etc/init.d/httpd start
Task: Debian Linux httpd/Apache installation

Use apt-get command:
# apt-get install apache2
# /etc/init.d/apache2 start
Task: Verify that port 80 is open

# netstat -tulpn | grep :80

You can also install httpd from CDROM with rpm command:
# rpm -ivh httpd*
Configuration

Your server is started but you need to configure and use Apache as per your requirement. /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf (RHEL/Cent OS/Fedora Core Linux) or /etc/apache2/httpd.conf (Debian / Ubuntu Linux) configuration file. Use text editor such as vi to edit file. This file is very well documented or read official Apache configuration documentation for more information.
