Hi everyone. This is a cool site. I stumbled upon it when I was looking for info on how to convert an hp 5300 thin client to run linux. I found some
good info on Paradoxsm's blog. Once I do my 5 posts and get my own blog I'll post info on what I've done and how I'm progressing.

have an Hp 2210 that I love. I'm an ESL teacher and I use the dictionary in it everyday. I muck around with Linux and have tried many distros (and messed up my hard drive countless times!) Right now I'm writing this from Damnsmalllinux on a usb stick on a Dell GX50. It's running completely in Ram and is very fast. The only problem is that the Dell's bios doesn't allow for usb booting so I have to use a boot floopy which slows the startup (floppies are still useful!)

Anyhow cool site and I look forward to interacting with you
