Installing Puppy linux, Not USB bootable
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 9, 2010
Ok, so I'm attempting to help a friend frugal install puppy on an ancient laptop. How ancient? I dunno, but the BIOS doesn't support booting from the USB port. Oh, and it has no CD drive.
So, to clarify, booting from CD or USB is out as the CD has to use the USB port.
It has Win98 on it, and she's attempting to follow these vague and fairly technical (for us noobs) to follow.
She's done up to the point of running grubinstall.exe but all she gets is a window flashing quickly saying a failure of some sort occured.
Is there a way to create a Linux partition, copy the stuff there and make it boot from that partition? Any ideas?

Windows DHCP Server Multiple Linux Boot Servers. Ehh?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2011
I'm curious if anybody can shed some light for me in this department. We're in a large environment with a Windows DHCP Server. We have been tinkering with LTSP on Edubuntu as thin and fat clients. It works great, but right now we just have 1 server handling the lab, which works fine unless we want to expand, which may be very possible.
These are the instructions I received:
Login to your windows server and load the DHCP configuration screenCreate a DHCP reservation for the MAC address you obtainedAdd the configuration options below to enable the machine to boot from the LTSP server017 Root Path: /opt/ltsp/i386066 Boot Server Host Name: <ip address>067 Bootfile Name: ltsp/arch/pxelinux.0 # Specify CPU architecture in place of 'arch', for instance 'i386'
I'm curious, what if I want to have multiple Ubuntu servers on the network that I want to have bootable? For example, let's say I have 3 labs, and 3 servers. S
Linux on a Mac Plus?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 26, 2002
Has anyone sucessfully put Linux on a Mac Plus?
If so, how?
Any thoughts, insights, help, etc. will be appreciated.
(Either I get Linux to run on this thing so we can share files from it with our other computers, or I might as well just throw it away. It's taking up too much storage space.)
Security issues with Parallel Desktop running linux on a Mac
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 28, 2008
I am running Linux Mandriva 2008.1 in Parallel Desktop (VM) on a Mac Host. There is no possibilities for me to have a shared folder so I am using FTP to transfer my downloads from my VM Mandriva to my Host Mac OS 10.5.2. I am actually using VNC on Mandriva and I let my MAC take over. My main concern is that when I use VNC my VM running Mandriva is by default made available on the network at my work. I don't want anyone accessing my stuff or even remotely seeing anything on it. I have put a login and password to access that FTP server but still is there anyways I could make that VM invisible on the network? As well, what type of firewall I could be using to protect that VM? I know there are plenty out there but the difficulties is that I am using NAT on a shared network with my host.
Thank you for your help,

Fastest Linux boot for web browsing and compiling
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 7, 2009
I am currently using Ubuntu Studio 8.10 64 bit, and it's a bit slow booting because I have a lot of services.
What is the fastest booting linux (32bit) for web browsing, compiling c and c++ code etc. and a rt61pci driver. That's all I need. I'm happy to compile my own, but I need help to show which distro and which services.
I've tried DSL but it seems to be only suited for live CD, and even DSL's a bit feature rich. So if you see what I mean that DSL's too feature rich, then I'd like something even faster!
Thanks in Advance.

Sharing Linux printer with Mac
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 21, 2006
P4 with Debian Etch (testing), kernel 2.6.12-1-686,
Gnome desktop and USB attached printer and scanner
PMac G5 running OS X Tiger (10.4.4)
I've got my AppleTalk/zeroconf LAN setup working for file sharing - with netatalk and task-howl on the Linux box.
When I had my printer connected to my Mac I could print to it from the Linux box with just CUPS whether the Mac AppleTalk connection with the Linux box was active or not. Then I decided I wanted more desk space around my Mac and moved the printer to my Linux box. Now I can print from my Linux box, but I can't seem to figure out how to print to it from my Mac :-P
For once I'm finding the printer setup on my Mac the more difficult :-( I've tried it outside the AppleTalk connection by simply supplying an address of 192.168.2.69:631 and though the printer definition is accepted, actual printing says the printer is busy. I've also tried
