RE: General Linux Questions



1.) How do you know the BIOS cant be upgraded. Check with www.unicore.com?

2.) If you set the time, it should stay set, otherwise it just needs
a CMOS battery.

3.) Linux is Y2K compliant, your motherboard isnt. All *nixs use
a 32 bit field for the date. *nixs wont have a problem until the
year 2038 and by then they will have switched to a 64 bit field.

4.)Logging off is not the same as shutdown or reboot (run as root). 
The screen is automatically invoked after about 5 mins.

5.) Video screen resolution/sound are only barriers to using a
a GUI interface. 90% of what learning Linux is about is the
command line interface. You know like that DOS prompt.
