> As a newer than new newbie in the field of Linux, I tried Ubuntu and then Kubuntu, read a few things and tried several times, but in vain. Then someone with some knowledge of Linux helped me. All in vain again. At 73% the xserver always hangs. Could you tell me please what's the matter? Btw a checksum test was OK.
Occassionally, there can be hardware issues that simply get in the way. Have you tried Knoppix or Kanotix (http://debian.tu-bs.de/kanotix/KANOTIX-2005-04/KANOTIX-2005-04.iso). Kanotix is suppose to be one of the best when it comes to hardware detection. Most like, video card from what I am reading here. Might suggest you swap that out if you can with a different make/model. Other thing is to boot vesa for the video setting (vga=791 video=vesa, you have to edit the command line to do this).
