I tried puppy linux wary 5.5 on this machine but it couldn'y identify my Belkin PCMIA wireless adaptor, which works fine on XP with drivers. Puppy linux even asked for the windows .inf file which I supplied from CD but still didnt work.
Any other flavours of linux worth trying, main problem I have apart from the wireless adaptor is the screen driver. XP before has no problem identifying the 800x600x16 LCD screen but puppy liniux I had to try several modes before it would display.
