Tool for Linux(external Link)
One of my personal favourites, and also a good choice for notebook-installations.
Note: you better upgrade the pcmica-package for better support of PC-Cards.
And also the Thinkpad 600E is certified as redhat-compatibel.
Also a very good distribution, actually based on Redhat. Has some updates
on the current Redhat and also includes the Powertools and a Contributed
CD. There is also a pentium-optimized Distribution CD.
The Debian Distribution is a distribution under the GPL. Freely availble
on the Internet. It takes some expierence to install this distribution,
but then it is very good and stable.
There are many other distributions....
but the above are the distributions, I am expierenced with. So feel free
to ask questions about my expierence.
