I'm interested in getting familiar with Linux before my raspberry pi comes in the mail. Would it likely work on my laptop? It's a Lenovo 3000 N100. What would be a good place to start?

Hmmm thats a hum dinger. First of all You dont need to put Debian on a flash drive. When running virtual box, instead of pointing the virtual box at a USB or CD you can point it to a *.ISO file, and it will mount it. Then you can so a traditional install. I have only ever used and recommend the small CD install, you don't need to update it, because it downloads the freshest packages. http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst#smallcdNotSteve wrote:Okay, so I looked for a youtube tutorial, and found this http://linuxliveusb.com/
I downloaded "Debian Live 6.0.4 Standard" on my flash drive and when I try to start it up in the virtual box, it brings me to the page in the picture. I'm not sure how to get past this screen. Any help would be appreciated! XD
