i have bought a second hand laptop [very cheap!could'nt resist!!] it's a Dell Latitude csx, it has windows98 on it which i don't like,i was thinking of putting linux on it, but i believe you have to format the hard drive first then put the new system on? am i wright or wrong?
the laptop has 128Mgb of ram,so would have to have small linux, but which one? puppy or damn small linux??
also the fan makes a noise,what can i do about that?
