Hello #! users

Hello!
My name is Tova
I am 16 years old, son of information technology-guy.
This is my first experience with a Linux Distribution and sadly, I cannot say that it has been going well =.=
I have 3 computers, one of them a 486 from 1995 that I have more for games, a Dell laptop from 2000 and a slightly newer Windows XP desktop.
Recently, I have decided to put CrunchBang on my Dell laptop and... encountered serious issues that I will describe in another post.
All in all, if CrunchBang does acctualy decide to work, I am very pleased and exited to be able to work in this new enviroment!
I hope I can find people here who will help me with my issue :3

Lep pozdrav iz Slovenije
Greetings from Slovenia

Re: Hello #! users

Hello! And welcome to Crunchbang.

You are using old hardware indeed!  I managed to get a Toshiba Laptop from 2001 working fairly well with Crunchbang, though I eventually got rid of that laptop.  It took some work, and I believe I had to run with ACPI off because Toshiba is a horribly non-linux friendly company.  They had really bad bios software.

Dell is probably easier to work with.  I'm sure someone can help you!  Good luck!

Re: Hello #! users

on the really old systems id recommend probably Damn Small Linux(DSL), Slitaz, or Tinycore.  I got DSL to work on my dell inspiron 2600.  I did get debian squeeze to work but only on a external monitor not on on the lcd screen...weird.
