I have a Compaq Amarda 100s AMD k6-2 533Mhz 96M Ram, 5GB hdd, pretty low end computer.
Having reformatted the hdd from previous W2K installation. I have been trying to install some distro including Easylinux 2.000 and Mandrake7.2 on this laptop for days (yes those distro CDs are old as well). I have had better luck with Easylinux I even got my Pcmcia nic DFE-670TXD working,,,, but it guaranteed to hang after using it a few minutes in KDE, don't know why. So I tried Mandrake7.2 but during installation it keeps failing at the install package stage saying cannot install such and such packages.
Did anyone successfully install any distro of Linux into the model of laptop? Or, is there any reason it keeps hanging (is it overheat)?
Any idea is appreciated
