suggestions for a particular laptop
my friend has a dell inspiron 3500 that's throwing VFAT errors.
a clean install is in order.
i've been googling and the results are....
*buntu: prolly not.
red hat: maybe.
he's an idiot. i wanna keep it as user friendly as possible.
one of my questions is... i haven't been geeking out with freebsd in about a decade (and, i'm disabled now; can only type with one hand so i don't type well and my memory is SHOT. i have no idea which conf. file applies to what, commands, etc.)
desktopbsd? how painless is the install for it?
*buntu and red hat... the google results i was reading were pretty archived. perhaps the kernel's gotten more hardware compatibility since?
p.s. he's just gonna use it for listening to music (so sound card compatibility's a must), email & surfing.
