The machine is an IBM T40. Installed Ubuntu on he but it's too slow. Thought I'try live. Burned the dvd-rom and "booted" from it. After a very long time (10 minutes) Ubuntu booted. That's all I know. An antiX cd started booting in about 10 Sec.
Also this message compose page is severely challenged but it won't let me link an image. Pretty lame. .
Any help would be appreciated.
