SUSE 10.2 on Dell Optiplex 320

I installed SUSE 10.2 on my bosses machine like I had talked about. It was a slightly bigger pain in the ass than I had expected. I should have checked it out before buying it, but I figured something shipping with openDOS was going to be pretty compatible. There are some known issues getting Linux on a Dell Optiplex 320. Otherwise I think the machine is pretty cool. It is very quiet.

The SATA hard drive was not recognized during the install. As I found suggested elsewhere, this is fixed by using the kernel parameter linux pci=nomsi. I read that another problem was that GRUB wouldn't work. I wanted to try for myself, and sure enough during the first boot grub $hit the bed. So, lilo it is. Those were the only two problems I ran into during the install and neither were too hard to fix.

After the install I had my usual problem with Samba, but that was about it. My boss will be back in the office Tuesday and will be able to play with his new SUSE machine. I'll have to wait and see how he does.
