FreesBIE

Burned the latest FreesBIE cd tonight and used it as live cd. Before I booted it, I disabled Plug & Play in the BIOS. Got it up and running, no sweat. Chose Fluxbox for the GUI. I like it better than most. It's more low overhead than the others and does everything I want it to. Sound worked fine. Network was no sweat setting from the terminal with ifconfig, route, and echo for the nameserver. Used smbclient to print to the old winbox on the lan. Still have to get the usb Sandisk mounted, but it's late. I'll fool around with it tomorrow night.
