    then booted it up on a different machine - my Sharp laptop with a messed up Windows XP OS.
    I was amazed that the Dell-made USB OS booted up at all on the laptop.

    Anyhoo . . . I used U9.04 first for a netboot reason . . . but then had a 1GB USB which is all the U9.04 Live USB needed . . .

    It seems after these posts that maybe it would be worth it to upgrade to 9.10 -
    either by synaptic package manager upgrade (?) or a whole new fresh start of a U9.10 Live version.

    Thanks for the thread and posts.

Do you have this issue, david?

    Glad to hear of your successful install. Long live the 1100!!!

    Peace.
    I have not noticed any distortions in my sound at start up or any other time. However I can say that I am able to play media files, dvd and music, and it works just fine. I do have trouble though streaming flash video, but if I go ahead and download and play the flash from my hard drive it works just fine that way.

    I would recommend you do a fresh install, you will likely get better results.
