Well ive tried installing two flavors of linux, SUSE 10 and FC4 on the laptop, but for some reason x11 seems to just. not. run. Can anyone suggest a distro for Protege3500.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Taintedhero, I have managed to install SimplyMepis 3.3.1 on my Toshiba Satellite Pro without a hitch. It's a Debian derivative and it works great. If you decide to give it a try, I hope you have similar success with it cause I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.
Kind regards.
