I'm installing ubuntu on an older dell laptop. I get thru most of the installation but when I (finally)reach the main Ubuntu screen everything freezes, including the mouse. Any ideas would be helpful.

Some specs of the laptop would be helpful...

FYI: Ubuntu and LinuxMint (which is based on ubuntu) have Fluxbox and XFCE versions that are good for "older" laptops.
