PSubuntu is great and all but maybe you should try installing Yellow Dog. The new release has alot of working apps pre installed.

Windows is Windows and Linux is Linux. All flavors of Linux have their own difference from one to another. "Ubuntu" uses apt-get were "Sabayon" uses emerge were "Yellow Dog" uses yum. All the same commands other wise do the same thing. It's like j3rking off with your left hand, you know how to get there and you know how to do it.

I just would like help fixing my display problem not some other os to learn too soon for that it could be that i am missing something important and very simple to fix but sometimes one does need the help to fix something. I will at least take a look at this yellow dog at the least but I have been very happy with my ubuntu os. everyone here does a nice job as a rule fixing major probs and sometimes it is that we need a point in the right direction. my psubuntu works great except for the fact I can not read a whole page or submit things on it at the moment.

I would also like to ask ppl that are really going to give helpping me a try to please post and not try getting me to switch my system
