Installed it on an older DELL INSPIRON 2200 laptop and it installed quickly with no issues except for not detecting/installing the wireless NIC. It's a Intel/Broadcom B43, which was easily found in the forums and detected and installed with a few extra steps. Otherwise, much faster than the WINXP Home that came on it.
