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

The Devil is in the details
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!
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.
Welcome aboard TovaSLO.
(If indeed you are unsuccessful with #!, & I doubt you will be, there are certainly other distros that will work, all the best.)
