    Thank you very much for the replies. Installed Xubuntu and it's working like a charm :)

    RE: Help: A suitable dist for an old laptop
    That semi-worked, the command lines did what they were supposed to but during boot "Stopping save kernel message" fails and display starts to blink, guess I could download the distro and try to install it that way, assume there are some residual files messing with me or something, thanks for the help :)

    Help: A suitable dist for an old laptop
    Hi, I've got an IBM T40 laptop running an intel celeron M cpu at 1.2 GHz and 1024 MB RAM. I'm currently running Ubuntu 11.10 on it but it's so slow. I'm looking for another dist to run on it, I'm not entirely new to Linux but I'm not an average user either. The laptop is used mainly for school work, writing reports, browsing the internet and the occasional YouTube video. Does anyone have a dist, preferably lighter than Ubuntu 11.10, you'd recommend? Regards Ani
