Question Packard Bell M5..Minimal Bash like line edit


I have a Packard Bell Laptop,model:M5 255,It has M$ Xp on it and I upgraded the memory to 768Mb. I cant install PCLinux on it as I get Minimal BASH Like line editing supported......The CD is fine I used it to run it as a live cd on another PC. I have searched everywhere for an answer as to how to get round this,I can run Kbuntu and Ubuntu on it as live Cd's...so Im properly confused...any ideas anyone?
