I didn't realize the listserve wasn't stripping the HTML, you have a
good point there about my posting in HTML though! My original point
was that searching either the manufacturer's website, or google for
information about Linux compatibility would have answered his
question. It appeared that he asked out of laziness, "Oh, Instead of
searching, why not just ask a news group?" Using google first is just
something I always assumed people did before posting to a newsgroup.
I wasn't thinking he might not have access to the web to do it
(although acquiring multiple distros without the web is curious!). I
will try to not jump to conclusions like I did.
