    RE: forum doesnt work with IE9
    Its refreshing to read comments by people who care. Some websites and forums take ages to even recognise a problem (then blame microsoft, users, addons, etc). So well done, and i hope it all works out. Next time i'm in the office i'll try a new thread, if no one beats me to it. Cheers, Jon

    RE: Installing on a very old laptop
    Thanks for the reply. Do you (or anyone else) have a thought on the best distribution to put on an old pc? My main concern is drivers. All i need is notepad and simple GUI to start with... THanks.

    Thanks for the replies. Using alternatives to IE9, or changing the default settings, is not an option. As all webdesigners know, sites simply have to work with what people have... Good luck and godspeed.

    Installing on a very old laptop
    Hi, i'm new to all this linux stuff, and i'm trying to breath some new life into an old Toshiba 3110CT laptop. Its a P2, 128MB ram, 4GB harddrive and from what i've read i think i'd like to go with macpup - unless anyone has reasons not to... Now the question is, how do i do a network install? A few years back i managed to squeeze windows xp onto this thing, but its just too slow. It will not boot from CD or USB. any suggestions / links / etc ?? Thanks.
