OK, this IS simple enough. Does anyone have a tar of a functional Linux
installation I can snag and uncompress on my second disk?
My assumption would be I would then just modify
/dev/sdb1/etc/hosts,hostname, etc. for networking and then reboot into
If someone can throw up a tar somewhere Ill come get it and
linux.detroit will be online today.
