Well, please help me out here... Im a linux nube so bare with me.
I've used Ubuntu for a few years, but I have never had to dive into any issues with getting something to work, so I guess I have been lucky.

Installed the lastest Ubuntu NBR alongside Vista via USB drive as listed
in the instructions on the Ubuntu site. The install went as it should.
I am currently typing this on the "functioning" system.

However, the main reason I wanted Ubuntu on this netbook was because the
Vista crap it came with is just a resource hog, and I use Ubuntu on my desktop and prefer it...

I'm having a few issues:

The overall interface/GUI is very slow and sluggish.

You cannot set the native screen size to 1366768, it only lets you have
1024x768 (4:3)

A few LED's are not working. One I notice is the wireless LED.

Anyone care to point me in the direction I need to fix these issues if it is even possible?

I would like to know if I just need to go back to Vista or XP with this netbook before I pull my remaining gray hair out...lol

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
