Hi guys. I was using Linux for the last two years but finally caved in and bought an old computer for my girlfriend to use her iphone on. My question is whether I can just remove the hard drive I have on my Everex TC2502 Green gPC w/ Via C7-D Processor (Some quick specs 1.5 Ghz, 512 MB DDR2 533 MHz SDRAM, 80GB Hard Drive Disk, 7200 RPM, UniChrome processor IGP) to the "new" used IBM ThinkCentre S51 Desktop PC – Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 1GB DDR333, 40GB HDD, CD-ROM, Windows XP Pro (more specs small form factor, 2 expansion slots, 3GHz, 7200 RPM).
How do I set it up to where Windows is the main OS (primary driver), and I can access files eg music, photos and videos on the older computer?
I hope I provided enough tech details to assist solving this question, any other details, email and I will update asap. Thank you.
Hey, I don’t want to use Linux if I don’t have to. I was just wondering if there was any way I could use the 80GB of memory that are on the old computer, via making the new computer that is running Wondows only, a 120 GB computer? While I like Linux, we need to use Windows for the time being. Thannk you.

How do I download Flash player to Linux?

I just now got linux; therefore, I need to download a few things. I need to download flash player, so I can watch videos on Youtube. However, when I download it, it tells me:

"Could not open "flash-plugin-10.0.32.18-release.i386.rpm"

Archive type not supported."

Okay. Then how do I do this? Will I get this message every time I try to download a program to Linux?

Yes, I did try to download one of the many Linux versions of Flash. I know it’s not my computer because my dad’s computer done the same thing that mine is doing.
This is a new computer with Windows 7 Ultimate beta version and Vista. I am just playing with Linux for fun.
I got it to work. I already know who’s going to get the best answer. Thanks. I just needed that little piece of info.

What is the best type of Linux OS to use?

From my understanding there are several operating systems that run on the Linux platform. Which is the best one?

(I know a lot about computers but Linux is not my area of expertise. I am planning on a getting a new computer and possibly dual booting if I get some info about Linux.)

Should they come out with a new operating system and new computer brand that would out do those? I think it’s time for a new brand of computer with type of operating system that is more reliable than those.

Hey, is it possible to move a hardrive that has a Linux OS (operating system) into a new computer with different mother board, BIAS settings, etc, and still have it work fine?
