This blog details the work I'm doing to turn the old computer I used in college into a Freevo system that uses Slackware Linux. I'll post the steps I take (hopefully something resembling a tutorial) and links to drivers or helpful websites. No promises on quality writing, but I still hope it can help! My system is detailed below. If you have any questions about how I got my stuff working, please contact me through my website. The link is on the left. Happy Linuxing!

New hard drive 

I got an 80 GB Maxtor hard drive from Staples for $40 after rebate (Black Friday sale). This will be my Freevo's hard drive. It's been over a month since I last worked on the Freevo, but I'm going to make a big push to get it done before the end of the year. Might totally start from scratch with the new drive, because the 12 GB drive that's in there now is dual-booted with Windows 2000 and has lots of really old files on it.
