The Internet

Where is the internet on the internet?

As one Slashdot poster found out, Google thinks that The Internet is located somewhere in Redmond, WA (first and second result point to microsoft.com)... However, new Yahoo's search engine is of different opinion.

I tend to agree with Yahoo's definition, which links The Internet to the The Living Internet site. My second choice would be The Internet Archive (8th result in Google, 5th result in Yahoo).

Fedore Core 2 (Test 2)

My experiences with Test 2 version were much worse...

Firstly, I found out how to use ReiserFS in Fedora: you have to enter "linux reiserfs" at the boot prompt. Once you do this, you are in the world of pain: installation will not complete correctly and boot will fail with message:

INIT: No inittab file found

Secondly, once I get over this stumbling block by installing init scripts manually, kernel panicked during hardware detection ("kudzu")... No Fedora for me yet...
