Hi mpfreeze; I can't answer your question because I know even less about Linux than you do, however I want to play with it some more, and perhaps you, (or your brother), might be able to answer a question for me.
The computer that I put Linux on, won't have an internet connection. How do I go about getting Linux software that I download on a Windows machine onto the Linux machine?
Floppies that I make on the Win machine won't be compatable with the Linux machine.
Any help will be appreciated.
