What distro for Compaq Armada 1750?
I have a Compag Armada 1750 laptop.
Specs are as follows:
333MHz Pentium II
64MB Ram (144pin SO-DIMM upgradeable)
5GB HDD (IBM Think pad Model)
ATI Rage LT Pro Mobility/TV Out (4MB of SGRAM)
14.1" TFT active-matrix LCD (will do 1024x768)
1 24x CD Drive
1 Floppy Drive
2 Type II PCMCIA Slots (Pretty sure they work, but untested)
Slot for Modem/Nic (No modem installed)
Now before you say "get a new laptop" or "add more ram" let it be known I paid $100 total for this little baby. It came with Windows 98 and it runs the software O.K. but I want something more up to date with more speed.
I'm new at Linux, I do run a website and have a Linux server, but I'm new in the sense of using Linux for stuff other than that. I have been a Windows user for a long time, I started out with DOS and Windows 3.11; although, my first computer was a Vic-20. :)
I just want a version of Linux with a windows like interface that can do some basic things like word processing and web surfing. It would be extra nice if it could play media files too.
I'm thinking of Vector Linux Standard, but I've also looked at Deli-Linux, MuLinux, and many others that are listed here:
I guess I'm just asking, based on this laptop's specs what would some of you recommend?
Oh yeah, and I only have 56k where I live so I can't download 10 different distro's and try them all out.
