Extended Information:

A totally graphical user interface for the Linux installation, login, and the desktop environment are sure to set OpenLinux 2.2 apart as the easiest to install and use. With powerful desktop applicatons, this new Linux product is sure to appeal to both first-time users and seasoned power-users.

Easier Than Ever to Install and Administer
The new graphical installation interface is powered by an enhanced installation called Lizard, (the LInux wiZARD.) Autoprobing your hardware for the right video card, network card, PCMCIA detection, size of hard drives, CD-ROM, and floppy drive, Lizard even saves installation time by copying packages to your system while you add user login names and passwords, set your time zone, and perform other necessary functions.

OpenLinux 2.2 has also integrated a custom edition of PartitionMagic, which lets you size and create a disk partition for OpenLinux, making installation, whether on an existing system with Windows or on a new machine, a snap. BootMagic allows you to boot between OpenLinux and other operating systems on your system.

Bundled Software Increases Workstation Productivity
OpenLinux now includes Corel's WordPerfect 8 and StarOffice version 5.

What's new in the Linux 2.2 Kernel?
The new Linux kernel is a treasure of new functionality and performance. Here are just a few of the highlights:

  • Improved performance of machines with at least 16 megs of RAM.
  • Power management for laptops
  • Linux will now read NTFS (Windows NT) drives and Windows 98 FAT32 drives (also used by some later versions of Windows 95)
  • Recognizes the Joliet system for long filenames on CD-ROMs.
  • Completely rewritten CD-ROM driver system for more standardized support
  • Support for more than 4 serial ports, and allows serial devices to share interrupts. It includes a number of drivers for non-standard ports and multi- port cards
  • Supports higher data transfer rates with newer modems
  • Many new sound devices are supported
  • Support for a growing number of TV and radio tuner cards and digital cameras
  • Enhanced support for Ethernet and ISDN devices
  • Additional rewritable CD-ROMs are sup- ported under Linux 2.2
  • SMP: up to 16 processors are supported, with amazing performance
  • Linux 2.2 includes enhanced support for spanning a filesystem across several disks transparently. Presently, this support can be used in RAID 0, 1, 4, and 5 modes as well as a simple linear mode.

Linux kernel 2.2.x; multi-user; multi-tasking; glibc 2.1 (and libc5 for backwards compatibility); PalmPilot-capability; comprehensive manual.
