Some classics from bash.org:

<@insomnia> it only takes three commands to install Gentoo
<@insomnia> cfdisk /dev/hda && mkfs.xfs /dev/hda1 && mount /dev/hda1
/mnt/gentoo/ && chroot /mnt/gentoo/ && env-update && . /etc/profile &&
emerge sync && cd /usr/portage && scripts/bootsrap.sh && emerge system
&& emerge vim && vi /etc/fstab && emerge gentoo-dev-sources && cd
/usr/src/linux && make menuconfig && make install modules_install &&
emerge gnome mozilla-firefox openoffice && emerge grub && cp
/boot/grub/grub.conf.sample /boot/grub/grub.conf && vi
/boot/grub/grub.conf && grub && init 6
<@insomnia> that's the first one


<Linuxgeek> How do i find the model of my card?
<Serena[T]> your nick is misleading, seriously
