Caldera, I also have OpenLinux Base 1.1 CD's kicking around. They were Red Hat based.
Supposedly, they had several value adds, like better NW integration and came with StarOffice (a
german company at the time). LISA was the "Linux Installation and System Administration" tool.
They called themselves the user friendly Linux, but when my non-techie friend tried it out it was
hanging just as often as Windoze.
The only other time I managed to hang Linux was when I was playing around with the Adaptec
17xx EISA SCSI controller driver. The first version I had to hack to get it to work, and in the
process needed to use the hardware reset -- the only time I thanked Bill Gates for making sure
the reset was on the front of the computer ;-)
