    -1 to everything Ubuntu for this graphics card. Again, the way to go is something 12.04-based, light and supported.

    I recently (re-)installed 12.04.1 ( I want to keep the older xserver) and I had the thought rather than downloading all the recent updates on that original liveCD to download it again. Guess my consternation when I found it no longer fits on a CD .. had to go all the way into town a buy some DVD blanks.

    Same story when I went to clean install Lubuntu, no longer fits on a CD (36 bits to big !)

    Being the case we are restricted to CDs, how about we try bodi-linux ?

    hey it is a thought
    Errm, no idea what you're thinking

    I just zsynced 12.04.1 and it's 696mb:

    Code:
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ cd Downloads/Ubuntu
    lance@lance-desktop:~/Downloads/Ubuntu$ ls
    precise-desktop-i386.iso         ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64.iso
    trusty-desktop-i386.iso          ubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso
    ubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386.iso    utopic-desktop-i386.iso
    ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-i386.iso  utopic-desktop-i386.iso.zs-old
    lance@lance-desktop:~/Downloads/Ubuntu$ ls -sh ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-i386.iso
    696M ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-i386.iso

    Just thought to add that Precise still offers Unity-2D and it's easy to set up a classic desktop w/metacity if Unity isn't your thing

    In post #17 you said "I tried Lubuntu 14.04 but it froze at the Loading bootlogo":

    Besides 10.04 desktop has reached EOL:

    The 12.04.1 images will fit on a CD.

    No, but you can install one. Once you've installed the server version, simply,

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

    All this has been explained recently. We know why you are using 10.04, but that is unwise, those reasons have also been explained.

    I just realized that i am out of blank CDs. Scince there is not bios supoort for USB booting is there a way i can trick it in to booting from a USB. Or is there a way i can rewrite a CD-R CD.

    Do you still have the 12.04 server version installed?

    If so, then follow Bucky Ball's advice and install the ubuntu-desktop package.
    It should install all the needed gui packages to run Ubuntu's desktop.
    when it installs, you will need to reboot.
    Code:
    sudo reboot
    (I guess maybe a logout might work, but rebooting is easier)

    Since your graphics card is rather poor, you will be logging into unity-2d, by default.
