Welcome to the forums!

If you want to have a pleasant first-time Linux experience then I suggest using a "distro" like Ubuntu or Mint on hardware that meets the following minimum requirements:
On the other hand maybe I have made incorrect assumptions about you and you actually have a very valid reason for using an obsolete Linux on a broken laptop from last century... in which I've probably just offended you and I'll stop typing now.
Either way welcome to the forums, it is a nice place to be!
