No luck with this last week, so I'll try again....
Any info from anyone running linux on a similar
Compaq (Presario Notebook 1615) would be
appreciated, especially for XWindows and
partitioning. I understand
that these things have some kind of Compaq
rescue disk and a small 'rescue'(?) partition?
The intention is to make it a Linux only machine.
