Being packaged with a Linux distro? Ooooohhh yes please!

I've got to wait for Christmas before I can get to my RPC to rip the ROMs- how will I wait that long?

I'm running the default Xandros. While I don't mind typing into a terminal I admit to not understanding 90% of what it hurls back at me.

I must say the wiki didn't look too complicated until it got to the networking at which point I got a bit lost. The really confusing bit was where you had two options on how to run it with superuser privilege - type sudo to start it each time or err... maybe I'll stick with sudo.

One of the great things about a genuine RPC is that it's very hard to damage unless you try to reprogram it with a pickaxe.

Just so I don't break anything I think I'll be enlisting the aid of my Linux-speaking friend. :-)
