    Just tried SUSE,and my x800 didn't like that one either,looked like an acid trip. Guess I'm stuck going back to ubuntu until there's better support for the x800 series.

    On a notebook I have Suse 10 but on my desktop I installed PCLinuxOS

    Over the past month or so I have downloaded virtually all the various versions of Linux and so far by far PCLinuxOS is the most friendly.

    In 2 hours I can have a completely unformated drive running PCLinuxOS with all the updates and configured exactly as I need and ripping a DVD to AVI through ACID.

    In fact ACID is the first ripper that I have found that can rip XXX State of the Union. Have tried various flavors of windows and then Linux.

    I suggest if you are interested in Linux, download the Live PCLinuxOS and give it a shot. If it works for you then install.

    Current desktop hardware is AMD64 3200+, 4 SATA drives and 2 gigs of memory.

    That's interesing. I've always stuck with dvd::rip. It has never failed to rip or encide anything I've tried. I run mandriva 2006 on a 64bit system with 2 gigs of ram also. Linux sure runs good on these high powered systems.

    I'm setting up gentoo now and it seems to be going pretty good.

    Gentoo is indeed worthwhile ; a colleague has installed Gentoo on a multiprocessor Sun Server and he's well impresses with it. I am also but just don't wanna put in the effort to get it all installed :)

    One thing about gentoo...... It does take some time. I'm thinking of building a new system with a dual core AMD64. I have always run duals until my present system. It's hard to beat SMP. My p3 dually will complete an encode using DVD::rip just a hair slower then my present 64 bit system. The difference is about 30 min. I can only imagine what a dual 64bit will do!! It helps to have a 320 SCSi drive behind it also. With Gentoo running in 64bit mode and a fast drive along with a dual 64bit cpu; It should be screaming fast.....
