Instlux - how do I use it?


I've tried any number of distros and LiveCD's on my Acer 5003 laptop (AMD 64 bit, 1Gb RAM, 100Gb HDD). Whilst some LiveCD's work 100% (Knoppix for example) if I try HD installations the hardware recognition fails.

I came across a reference to Instlux and it seems just what I need. It will take my existing XP settings and transfer them to Ubuntu 5.10 (OK I know v6 was released this week). The problem is I can download and run the Instlux executable in XP but all it does is produce a screen on reboot that offers to uninstall itself. When I look on C:/ it has added a couple of Dir, but is that all I get for 5Mb of code? What do I do next? I've looked at the instlux web pages but they are minimalistic. I've looked in Wiki. Anyone know either where I can acquires instructions or how to proceed?
