    is there any information on how Redhat 9 effects the performance of your PC? I'm asking as I run a low end Celeron, and don't want to pile more processing on the poor thing.

    Im currently running RH 9 on a 400mhz celery and it is fine even in gui mode.

    It has 256k ram and I owuldnt recommend running it on anything less that that. If work were nto so cheap i might have a decent box but that is by the by.

    Seems fine. It doesnt really seem to increase the work load any over previous versions, especially in console mode. In GUI mode it seems about the same. However I havent got any benchmarks or anythign to prove that, Just my personal perspective after using it for a bit.

    thanks for that. As I'm limping along on a 333 mhz Celeron with 192mb of memory, I think I'll upgrade the processor and memoru before whacking Redhat 9 on it.

    thanks again.

    I'd check or verify your socket type before buying a newer celeron. I don't recall off the top of my head when socket types changed.

    But I did find a handy url for reference at http://www.legge40.freeserve.co.uk/Sockets.htm

    yes, that is a problem. I've an old socket 370 board, and the Celerons I see in the shops are all 478s. I suspect that I'll have to get it from ebay (where I got all the bits that make up my present PC.

    thanks
