Sorry if you didnt get at much response as you wanted, so here's mine.
I also want to try Linpus - on my HP2133.
I downloaded the iso file for 9.4 (a very long download due to the very slow link) and burnt it to dvd,
I tried booting two different machines from the DVD. The first, an IBM Thinkpad T41 did not like it at all - due I think to video driver problems.
However, no matter becasue it was not that, that I wanted it for anyway.
I tried the HP 2133 netbook and presto, it boots ok from an external dvd drive!
Two options: Live CD mode, and Installation
The live CD works great! I'd seen it on the Acer netbook but clearly that version is not the standard one as this setup has many more applications etc installed and also looks a little different.
I liked it so much that I wanted to install it properly using the other boot option!
I tried that but it failed at the select a partition stage - it just reboots and then back to square one.
I tried the instructions here http://www.pilotennetz.de/computing/...stall/#english
but fdisk doesnt seem to ba ble to fibde the hard disk
So I'm stuck. Help anyone?
