Of course, I've forgotten Linux and the only password I remember is ROOT...
Today I am updating from Seshat, the desktop I had in college that is still running Linux Red Hat 7.3. Mom's new computer was bought yesterday, so we decided to take today to look at all crap in the computer room, set up the stuff that we want to have working, and get rid of all the rest of it. So my old desktop actually has a desk to sit on now! And a monitor of its own!\o/
Now to finish sorting through the junk. And then figure out how to put security on the wireless router. And get networking, filesharing, and printer sharing working right on all four functional computers, one of which is running Win95, one of which is running XP, one of which is running Vista, and one of which is running six-year-old Linux.
It should be great fun!
And then I will go get the broken computer and see what I can salvage from it. It would be nice if I could set this box up to dual-boot off its hard drive, but I've never done that before, so also fun!
(and OTW put up its official Ruby stuff which I need to download and look at soonest, too.)
Also, this computer has 5,000 mp3s on it that I haven't had regular access to in years. Just what I needed!
