Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

If you'd like to have someone help you out then you'd better use something more descriptive in your Thread title, just saying HELP!!! doesn't draw any attention to it but might have the opposite effect. You might want to try some lightweight distros like DSL, Puppy, Crunchbang, Xubuntu. If you want more choice, go over to Distrowatch.com and do a search on their website.

Looking forward to your participation in the forums. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric
