My hardware is a Toshiba Satellite P10-554:
P4 2.8 Ghz HT, 512 Mb RAM, 60 Gb HDD, nVidia GeForce FX card with 64Mb VRAM, Matsushita DVD RAM CDD... and I use a Xentrix 7005Q2 ADSL USB modem for internet.
I am making a total mess playing with some Live CDs (Mepis / Knoppix / Ubuntu) & Red Hat FC1 + SuSe 10.0 with similar problems... no ASDL support (haven't tried any hacks as not pro enuff)... screen size suffers with RH FC1 inspite of selecting the correct card...SuSe DVD gives errors during install... some dont let me see the MS NTFS partitions...
I am dying to throw MS XP Prof out of the window (
Given the hardware, has anyone with the same sys been 'totally' satisfied with any particular distro? Please suggest? Any one has some suggestions before I crash my HDD?
