To date, only ~Ubuntu derived, tried MXLinux and the grub loader twatted the MBR so I had to (once again) install Win7 from scratch. Was not impressed with that tbh... MXLinux install not particularly noob-friendly compared to Lubuntu or Mint.

If I was keeping it I would have a crack at anything.. but as I am selling this on I want to avoid any comeback issues from non-tech peeps.
Then again, while it is in my possession.. I may investigate while I have the chance...

Any particular Slack that you recommend?

Not really into live stuff.. am oldskool.. rather just burn to dvd-r, whack it onto HDD partition and go from there...
