Re: Linux books (Sabayon Pocket Book)

I would love for there to be a small pocket book available for Sabayon. Something that is truly pocket size, like a little mini Bible that you can carry with you and read when you have time to learn.

Re: Hard Drive installer for Small Older PC's please? 64MB Ram e

OK, here's the update. I downloaded the 3.4 Mini edition update. I ran it and all the options come up with. PANIC: Your CPU is to old for this kernel. (Or something similar).

Core Instal?

As in just do a Stage 3 from GenToo?
