Saddened to report I've been unable to successfully boot this 1999 Corel Linux CD on any physical hardware I have. I guess the year of Linux on the desktop came and went.

@mike i actually used this for a while back in the day on my old p3 450. Its hardware detection was very impressive for the time. Think i went on to debian 2.2 after this and never looked back.

@hurt138 I definitely tried it for a bit, but I didn't like KDE much back then. I was pretty committed to Red Hat in that era, especially in the server room, so I didn't really get into to Debian systems until Ubuntu came along.

@mike yah never much cared for kde myself.. to happy and cluttered for me. Back then i was all blackbox, fluxbox, etc.. moved to gnome eventually and now cinnamon.
