    Someone at freegeek suggested knoppix, perhaps I will try it. I'm just getting tired of downloading one thousand different liveCDs and OSes, none of which have worked well or at all, as of yet.

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu won't load, been at this for weeks, please help.

    I thought I read elsewhere that an alternate CD won't let me recover my saved work from the old hard disk drive. Can you confirm or deny this for me? I will try the MEPIS suggestion first I suppose....
