I got a "new" laptop,and its a compaq armada e500 with a 700 mhz pentium 3,128 mb ram,12 gb hard drive, a cd reader,a floppy drive and an ATI Rage graphics card with 32mb vram.I have a few questions about it and linux
1)would it be ok to install fedora core 6 on it? (IE would it be very slow,etc...)
2)I made a backup of all the files on it and put it on another computer exactly as they are,and it has an installation of windows xp pro.
My question is if i for some reason need to go back to windows xp,can I just copy and paste everything back and be able to boot it back into the original windows,or would i need another set of install cd's?(not illegal ones)
and 3)I have a belkin 802.11 g wireless pcmcia card for the laptop.Should it work under Fedora core 6?
