Also for laughs i tried Knoppix. FAST, easy, detects EVERYTHING. Upon the first boot, both monitors go blank, but one goes into stand by, the other remains on. But the screen was totally blank. OK fine, reboot, says USB device will not accept new IRQ. So i unplug my one and only USB device, my IBM pc camera. Reboot. I get a TON of errors. Starts with find, then some file, and just says input/output error. After that, it looks at the hard drive, HDg, and says Lost interrupt. and just loops that infinite.
So im gonna try mandrake again hah.
