By Lucy A. Snyder
5 April 2004


Let's face it: any script kiddie with a pair of pliers can put Red Hat on a Compaq, his mom's toaster, or even the family dog. But nothing earns you geek points like installing Linux on a dead badger. So if you really want to earn your wizard hat, just read the following instructions, and soon your friends will think you're slick as caffeinated soap.

Minimum Installation Requirements:
one (1) pocketknife

one (1) screwdriver, flathead, to install Duppy card (see item 4. below)

computer with:

CD drive

USB, Ethernet, or a free slot for wireless networking card

Telnet or SSH client installed

cyberspiritual controller program such as FleshGolem (MacOSX and Linux), Phranken (Windows 98, ME, 2000), or ItzaLive (MacOS 8.1-9.x and Amiga)

one (1) Duppy card (available in CardBus and PCI models) or SpiritInTheSky external adapter (available in ethernet and USB models)

VD Linux (available from Twisted Faces Software)

minimum 3' x 3' (1m x 1m) fireproof surface, in secure, ventilated area
