Im currently trying to get linux on an old 233mhz ibm laptop.

 

let me suggest ubuntu, its debian based which is normally very good at handling old hardware B)

 

i should point out.. that if you plan on dual booting, you should install windows first then linux :)

 

oh .. and WELCOME!

check ....and check....The dual booting is for the desktop (Ubuntu and Xp), which from what i can see worked fine (havent booted into Xp yet) but its killing my resources (xp runs much faster), which means more work. Iive just been using frugal install of DSL on craptop, but i will try Ubuntu with no GUI, seing as it takes 1.5 days just to get to partitioner...literally. Thanks for your help though :)
