Xubuntu install problems on really old laptop
I have tried installing Xubuntu on a really old laptop I have (it's like, 5 years old) and I keep having the same problem. When I put the disc in a try booting into it, it shows the word "Xubuntu" on the screen for about a minute. Then the screen goes black, and the computer won't respond and the screen (it's hooked up to an external monitor, the built in one broke, but you can see a very faint image) goes into sleep mode. The hard drive light stays off too. I've tried leaving in that state for a few hours, to see what would happen, but nothing does. The computer has XP installed, and can boot into it just fine. It has a 1.5 Ghz processor, and 256 MB of RAM.
