Brad Porter's Website Intro

When I was in graduate school, a colleague somewhat discouraged me from trying to install the operating system linux at home. "It's a hobby," he said, indicating that I should expect to spend a lot of time at it. He was successful at discouraging me for quite a while, but the lure was too great. I was a broke graduate student, happy to save a little money, and I was becoming more familiar with unix and was getting comfortable with it. The only problem was that I tried to save too much money, and tried to install it on my 386 with 4 Mbytes of RAM.
