    OK, downloading Sabayon DVD now from the VA Tech mirror. Should be done by 830am or so.
    http://www.sabayonlinux.org/mod/mirrors/
    check it out, this may be the gamers solution. Read about it, cutting edge as far as distro's go.

    I'm going to install it on my server. Should be an easy install but it uses 768mb and a GeForce3 Ti 500 on an AMD +1800, so the eye candy won't be up to snuff. I may put it on my laptop later and my nephew's new computer, where it will run a LOT better.

    If anything will run LoMAC BobKat, this one has the best chance. We shall see later on.

    CapnGimp there is software that will help you run windows games on linux. I tried it out and I could run age of the empries 3, it just takes alot more processing power/resources.

    It just wasn't worth the hassel though. I just put linux on a seperate harddrive, so restarting into windows to play games seemed more realistic to me.

    but check this out:

    thats the software I used to play window games on linux.

    You can also use Wine to run them. Takes some work around, but they've got alot of them working.

    Talking Saybayon Linux iz bettern PORKFAT

    HA! I'm using Sabayon now. I burned 3.4a to dvd after I got up this am. I was about to install it and by chance rt clicked over the destop during the setup process. It is running 'live' Fluxbox with a bunch of apps. So I came here to post. First time I've used Fluxbox Cory, nice simple one.
    Anyway, I have been using linux distros since about late 97 so I understand about gaming not trying to be a know it all, don't get me wrong fellows.
    I was caught by suprise on boot. After it got to the install environment it has BOTH my Plasma and laptop screens running perfect!! Usually, I have to install drivers by hand to get the plasma going right. I'm already sold after reading about it last nite, but when the plasma came up at boot, I'm a fan already
    Download the dvd guys and run it live if ya don't want to install. After I check it out, I'm subject to repartition my hd to make it mostly Linux vs winders.
    The writeup says this is THE gamers choice of distros to run windows games. You haver to at least go read!! TRUST ME on this one. Methinks we have a new RULER OF de ROOST here. I like the icon for it, lol, it's either a Turkey or chicken foot. I like to think Turkey as ol Ben wanted to make this noble bird our main squeeze instead of the eagle.
    ok, back to the install, check you guys in a bit.

    PS I couldn't resist installing over Ubuntu on my laptop. I'm a headfirst kinda guy... I'll do the old server later.

    screencap

    Oh, for all you WINDERZ hosers...er, being-used....ummmm...users out there, lol
    I am typing this post while my OS INSTALLS, not waiting 2 hours to begin using, just to do another 5 hours of updating before I install my software, lol.
    and PatonB, in regards to defragging Linux, it is NOT needed, this ain't MS.
    It places the files for fast access automatically WITHOUT bunching them up back to back only to be moved and fragmented when used.
    Linux, the REAL thing.
    And it is free.

    Yep flux box is a nice light weight windows manager, I use to use blackbox (which I believe flux box is based on) on my old old system I think it had 32 megs of ram, 10 gig harddrive, god knows what processor speed but it would run black box fast as hell.

    So with it being gentoo base, do you have to re-compile everything everytime you update or how does that work?

    Mr C... I guess, from reading their wiki, they plan frequent updates so all you do is d/l the new verson, and 'update" via the disk.

    I guess the disk/OS knows if it's an update, or full install.
