I was once successful installing Ubuntu on this very old laptop. Since then the hard drive was wiped. Maybe I can install Linux again?
Nope! The latest Ubuntu 10.10 would not. But I think that was a CD media errors since I was getting: SQUASHFS error: Unable to read page, block [letters/digits], size [letters/digits] And, this page says so.
I had an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS CD available so I tried that. Installed fine. However, after I login, the screen gui is blank. I remember this issue and their is a fix or if I have time try to burn another Ubuntu 10.10 CD. Unfortunately the laptop cannot boot off of thumb drive.
