Installing Linux

I’ve decided that I want to run an Uru server. I have a computer I’m going to buy, but until then I’m using a little piece of crap computer that I got for free. It’s got 128mb of RAM and less than a 1ghz processor, which I don’t think is fast enough to run an anything server on, but it is something. I’m going to use the computer for practice installing Linux and the Uru servers, and possibly run a local Uru server on it. I’m using Ubuntu Linux 5.10 for the OS, because I like Ubuntu. It’s the king of freeware. It comes pre-installed with Firefox, Thunderbird, and The Gimp, three of the five best freeware programs on the internet (the free five are Firefox, Thunderbird, The Gimp, Blender, and Trillian). All computers should come equipped with them, sadly most do not.

Anyway, I’m going to post updates about the install here.

EDIT: Oh and I just realized that Tomato (the new computer) has 2 30gb IDE drives, which I can use in my 2 main computers when I get the real server (my computers require IDE drives sadly, but I can use these!). That means that I’ll have $300 to spend on whatever I want!
