    It should work, have you try the live cd?

    I have to agree with the others that go with xubuntu, it is designed to run on machine with low specs.

    Following this thread because I have the same machine and already have 12.10 on it. Of course the wireless doesn't work and I'm old and a newbie to this. Can I overwrite the ubuntu with xubuntu? And how? Or is there a fix for ubuntu that someone could "guide" me through? Thanks John

    Yes you can ovewrite the OS or simply search for xubutnu-desktop in software center install it and then on loging in select xubuntu. you can later remove gnome if you wish to keep xubuntu.

    Just go this route

    And point to your existing partition

    You likely only have root (/)
    So you should backup your files
