Installing Linux on old laptop
I have an old laptop (Compaq Presario 1200) and I've been trying to install a version of linux on it. I already tried Ubuntu, Xubuntu, DSLinux and I'm currently attempting to install Puppy linux (or that's what I think it's called). I'm also downloading Zenwalk just in case puppy linux doesn't work.
Anyways I messed the laptop up ages ago, and whenever I start the machine up (without a CD in it) it says "Invalid system disc" or whatever, that's not exact word for word, but it's close enough.
Anyways I need suggestions on free linux versions that I can install on an old laptop like this.
If I posted this in the wrong section, then please do move this.
