Bug About my comen knowledge of Darwin

As for my comen knowledge of Darwin is very small, but I do here that it can be pretty handy. The only thing I use it for is usually OsX hacks. One day in Mac World I got this extra booklet. It showed a bunch of worst case scenario tips using darwin, such as when your CD-rom drive gets stuck it gives you some basic commands to input into Darwin.
But other than that that's all I can think of. I'll do some more research and get back to you. My only advice would be to check it out on the mac web page. You will find Darwin in the OsX section.

I tried to check it out but the installer wouldn't run on my system.

AMD 400Mhz, Cirrus Logic GD 5464 (Laguna), VIA Chipset.

I was really bummed. I've been using Linux for years, but just wanted this to toy around with.
