    Question about distro for a Thinkpad T42


    Hey everyone,

    My name is Ashley and I've been running Linux for about two years and now I am learning how to use the terminal. Linux has been easy to use so far. However, I am having some difficulties that seem to do with the graphics card and a bad battery. Ubuntu and I frequently get a garbled screen and Mint keeps locking and I have to reboot. Any suggestions on a lightweight system that is good for a beginner?

    Thanks!

    Mint Debian Edition for a beginner ... but you can look in the polls section of the forums for more suggestions

    Thanks. I'm going to stick with Mint and work on getting a new AC adapter.
