Hi everybody,
  I want to install Linux in my IBM ThinkPad 380D, how can I setup it to run Xfree86? Thank you very much for your help! (P.S. : I'm using Red Hat Linux 4.2)

have you had problems doing this?  I mean just running the install program off of the cd?  tell me the specifics of what you've tried, and maybe the software you're currently running.

There should be no problem installing Linux.  If you don't know how, purchase one on the many fine books available.  These books will most likely contain detailed installation instructions and  the required disks.  If you are an advanced user, download the files from the Red Hat site for free.

If you are having problems with your install, try the "linux on the thinkpad" page at:
