AMD64 3000+ Desktop computer @ 2.0Ghz
Asus K8V-X ATX motherboard
1GB DDR RAM
Asus Readon A9550TD AGP 128MB
120GB hard drive
For $210. Too much? Just right?
Anyway, part of the reason I wanted the upgrade was that it leaves the way for my old desktop PC to become a Linux box!
Asus P2B motherboard
384Mb RAM PC100
16Mb AGP Graphics card (MSI I think)
Some questions in no particular order.
This will eventually become my son's first computer and I would like somehow to create a user for him that won't allow him to "break" it. Brilliant if I could make it so that his user couldn't access the control panel.
Software - I searched for linux educational software and found a bunch of free programs for Linux. Know any good sites for a primary school kid?
Drivers - Will I need anything special for the above configuration? I would like to install a wireless network card but note that there can be huge issues with drivers. What's the best/cheapest way to get one? I am going to presume that the $1 cards on TradeMe are highly unlikely to work in Linux?
