N1VUX is my FCC-issued ham radio callsign.
My attempt to partiton the harddrive to allow dual-boot failed, so it is Linux only now. I thought a desktop-style distro like Ubuntu would do well on it now, but the "Warty" release that I picked up CDs for at LinuxWorld in Boston/February gave it serious overheating problems. Updating to 2.6.10 kernel / "Hoary Hedgehog" seems to have helped, although I've also put a laptop cooler under it pro-tempore.
Ubuntu is pretty cool aside from heating up the laptop - Default install includes Gaim, Firefox and Evolution (email), all seem quite good. I do now see why some people find paying for Mandrake a convenience, the Debian-style Firefox from Ubuntu comes without Java support.
