    lubuntu wont run on dell insiron 8100

    pentitum III. 512mb ram.

    on the port replicator it just spins the cd for 30 sec then reboots.

    off the pr, stand alone, it started loading, but i walked away a couple min & when i came back, i had nothing but a bunch of horiz colored lines & had to reboot.

    tried again & it just started doing the reboot thing again like it does on the pr.

    md5 sum checks ok & the cd loads fine & runs on my 4 year old desktop.

    also, knoppix & kanotix both run ok on the dell on pr.

    due to age and horse power ubuntu would not be a good fit for that machine.

    Maybe try Lubuntu 13.04 on it and see if that'd be an option.
