Fun project for summer vacation: have your kids build their own Linux PCs
,----[ Quote ]
| One of the nice bits about Ubuntu Linux is that it comes as a "live" CD.
| That is, you can boot from the CD, test your hardware, and run the
| operating system all without actually touching your hard drive. So both
| computers did that, and then the boys used the one-click install to load
| it onto their hard drives. So fifteen minutes later, both boys had
| working systems with OS, browsers, email, office software, and a host
| of brand new games to play with. They are thrilled, and will probably
| be entertained by those systems for the rest of the summer (and year).
