No comment - I'll try FreeBSD when I've got a spare few hours to download
the ISO image. I've already got a machine that can run it - an ARM610 based
Acorn Risc PC - it's just a shame I don't have an Ethernet Podule for it.

Slackware is quite stable, probably because Slackware have a "We're not
going to hack the Kernel, nor are we going to use any fancy packaging
systems or init scripts". I had plenty of trouble with Mandrake Linux - I
couldn't get Kylix running on it, it refused to detect my network card...
After an hour of tweaking /etc/rc.d/rc.modules under Slackware with VIM, I
had sound and networking running perfectly. I guess that's what I get for
buying a "cheap Taiwanese piece of crap" (my friend's words, not mine).
