    I have a Dell Dimension 2400 that came with Windows XP SP2, but now runs Hardy Heron. I have 2 gigs of ram so it makes it a little better, but it still needs a little modifications to speed it up a little. I love Ubuntu though!

    To speed it up try Xubuntu, It's Ubuntu with a different desktop and menu system. Both the size of the system being smaller and the increased speed make it worthwhile. You could probably install 9.10, works on older machines too.

    I tried doing that and the install goes fine but when I reboot it never loads the boot screen..it's like it hangs up. I have had this same problem on numerous linux distros and they all do the same. The only one I have ever got to work is Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I would like to use a newer release but cant for some reason.

    I have the salvaged guts of a salvaged Dimension XPS D300 in a new case, running a dual-boot of IBM PC-DOS 2000 and Ubuntu 8.04LTS.

    And I've almost got it deranged to suit my taste.
