More Red Hat mania and PSP news
Friday, February 24, 2006 | Author: Mad Typist
Well, the experiment installing Linux went... less than satisfactorily. I tried installing Red Hat Fedora Core 4, which required two attempts to get something that looked even remotely functional.

My new problem is that half the time the system refuses to boot properly, so you have to reboot and hit F2 to enter the BIOS menu. From there, I can usually get it to load correctly. However, even when I get the GUI desktop to run, a lot of the time, the network card doesn't activate properly.

I've also realized how spoiled I am with Windows Install Wizard. I'm trying to figure out where to stick my new update of Firefox 1.5 so that the new browser will launch, instead of the old 1.0.7 version that comes with the OS. Yeaerrrrgh.

This weekend, The Boy has declared that we must clean our apartment, so I'm not sure how much time I'll have to tinker with the Linux box. If I get a free moment, I think I'm going to have to open the box, make sure the network card is firmly pushed into the slot and then perhaps do a fresh install of the OS one more time.

In other news, Fight Night Round 3 is almost tempting enough for me to want an Xbox 360, and I'm debating whether or not to buy this Korean PSP game called DJ Max Portable. I'm almost certainly going to go out and get myself a copy of Exit which looks awesome. Also, apparently they are releasing Lemmings for the PSP, which is the most exciting news I've heard all month.

Being a proud owner of an Xbox 360 and a closet Xbox-fanboy, I would highly recommend getting a 360. Fight Night Round 3 looks amazing on my HDTV (unfortunately, plays just like Round 2). I'm absolutely in love with GRAW. It's the closest I'll ever get to being a real soldier.
