If you don't already have samba instaled, you will need to install it. Then edit the smb.conf file. It's located in /etc/samba/smb.conf
Not very far from the top of the file you will find the line workgroup = MSHOME...change MSHOME to the name of your windows network if it's different from the default. Then right under that make a new line that reads "name resolve order = bcast host" (without the quotation marks, of course).
Once in a while I do...why, just last night I had the ocassion to use two different browsers at the same time.
Oh wait! "...use more than one web browser" is not what you were really asking...was it? You meant what browser do you use other than Firefox/Iceweasel...right? The answer to that question for me is usually Chrome.
I'm also a ThinkPad fan (have about 20 different models in my collection), that has several Pentium M CPUs in need of non-PAE kernel. Of topic...but:
And to the best of my knowledge, anything based upon Debian directly is usually an "install once and never again" matter do to the rolling updates model followed by the parent Debian branch.
FYI...CrunchBang is not a rolling distro, and neither is the Debian stable branch on which it's built.
Well...no really new suggestions, but a few questions:
Are the temps you are seeing at idle, or under some kind of load?
What model laptop is this?
Is there a gap between the CPU and heatsink? There should not be.
Does the CPU fan work? Have you check to be sure it's working?
I would like to see a #! Sid release...I've always thought Crunchbang was a silly name for a Debian Stable based distro, it would be more fitting for experimental IMHO.
Tried LinuxBBQ Darkside, and while it's a fine effort, it's lacking the wireless adapter firmware that #! contains, so gave me more trouble getting my wireless adapter working that I want to mess with.
