Question what can I install on a Compaq EVO N610c


I tried to load MEPIS LINUX 6.0 but it was too big or something & would fail. I heard there are some lite version. I am a newbie & know very little about non-window PC's. I do know a bunch about MS but I need(want???) something different.

The Evo n610c should be sufficient enough to run Linux.

I had this same Laptop and have installed Fedora Core 6, SuSE 9, Ubuntu 6.xx, and Gentoo.

How much memory is installed ?

What was the failure messages ?
