Linux on a gateway 2500


wazzup....Hey, has anybody tried to install any Linux distro on a gateway solo 2500 laptop? I am having problems trying to adjust the font settings to be somewhat readable to my eyes....Yes, I have checked the linux-laptop site.... That didn't seem to help me any. I need a new approach to this problem.
