What is Linux XP? Open it from a command line and post the error messages you get.

I dont like it, I used it at a friends, and no way would I use it, especially when Ubuntu works perfectly for free.

I think its main appeal to newbies is its familiar GUI, alot of pre-configured stuff, etc.

Ah, I remember it now. To be honest, it's been so long since it was on the radar that I had completely forgotten about it. Definitely go with Ubuntu or a variant - extremely easy to setup, lots and lots and lots of programs and it still looks and feels like Linux.
