I successfully installed Lubuntu 12.04 on an old Dell Inspiron 8100 with 256mb of RAM and it's working quite well except for one issue.
The Grub menu can't be read because the screen is overwritten with "@@@" and such and it seems it's not displaying in the right resolution or maybe the refresh rate is wrong. 'Not sure. Once the Nvidia driver kicks in, all is well, however, and the lxdm and lubuntu desktop come up fine.
What can I do to make the GRUB menu readable to my end users?
