As an update to my initial review - been playing around and tuning for a week or so now and I'm more impressed than ever. I'm a bit of a newbie really, make my living from Microsoft so Linux has always just been a curiosity to me but no more.
Installed it to a P4 1.7Ghz with just 256mb and 16mb ATI card - NOT a fast machine but after I turned off some services, tuned hard disk parameters and a few bits here and there it performs like a dream. I agree with all comments above although it did install the correct (i686) kernel and yes, updating software afterwards can be a little tedious.
The important thing really is that I've been running Windows XP on this machine with disgusting performance, I know it's old but I didn't want to retire it. Now I can run a modern OS with high performance - I'm so very, very impressed.
