First of all I would to say that I'm absolutely dummy in linux world.
I've bought for a fistfull of Euros an compaq armada e500 laptop, not so new....The CPU is an INTEL P3 800MHz with 128MB of ram and 10GB of hard disk.
I choose for this pc the Xubuntu 8.10 release, but there's a big problem. After few minutes from the beginning of the installation process, when just the windows with the mouse pointer and a nice blue desktop color appear, it crash. No more mouse, no more cd and hard disk activities. All is frozen. The only thing I can do is reset the pc.
Why? there's something doesn't like to Xubuntu? Not enough ram?
BHA! Please, I DO NOT WONT TO PUT IN WINDOWS! SAME VE!
