Linux Mint Download question
Hi, if I download the Live CD from the Linux Mint download site, will it work?
Here's where I'm at - advice appreciated:
First of all, though I have a pack of Maxell CD-R, I rarely ever burned anything on CD, so don't remember how.
I have 2 old systems (one an X31 Thinkpad whose HDD often cranks noisily and whose display often jumps up and down like a seesaw)
it's also been infected by Trojans.
..the other is an old 2003 Dell Dimension 4600 tower with only 256mb RAM.
The Dell tower has been put thru a Sys Reinstallation back to the SP1 version, and now seems to be frozen.
I decided to try burning Linux Mint onto CD via the X31, and then trying to install it on the Dell tower, to see if that would resurrect the tower's usage.
As for resurrecting the X31 thinkpad (which i love, when Google/YouTube access had not yet become infected, and when it isn't cranking noisily or seesawing) I guess there may be too much wrong with it to bother?
BTW, I'm typing this post on the X31
To anyone tempted to advise getting a high-power laptop, please note that I specifically require a low power laptop due to electrosensitivity. I actually do have a higher power laptop, with Core 2 Duo, 2gb memory & 120gb HDD, but can barely use it 1/2 hour before getting severe symptoms (this is an understatemen). Somehow high-power laptops are worse for me than high-power towers, though the Dell isn't such a picnic either. The 1.4ghz thinkpad is the absolute most tolerable, as are other low ghz laptops i've tried.
