So yer Imtrying to install xubuntu on this old laptop so that it can be used for netsurfing and word processing and listening to music while doing so. Its an old Fujitsu Siemens Amilo with a 1ghz celeron, 128mb RAM and a 10gb hard disk. Im trying to install/run the live cd and all is ok, get to the splash screen progress bar gets to the end and then it goes to a black screen. Nothing. Im keen to get it up and running but cant get past this, im going to get the alt install now to see if its helps. But at 129mb I think I meet the sys reqs? Thanks in advance for any help. If there would be a more appropriate beginners distro please let me know, opted for this so that I would be more familiar with it when it came to the server Im planning! Dean.
