Testing 8.04 on Toshiba A105

I'm a new, fascinated user testing Xubuntu 8.04 on an underpowered
Toshiba Satellite laptop. Unfortunately for dual-boot, I can only
retrieve a 10G partition from this 80G Vista drive [MFT near 64G mark
prevents further shrinkage]. Ubuntu 7.14 and 8.04 have tested well also.
'Hardware Report' was sent and I joined Launchpad.
How do you feel I will fare installing Xubuntu 8.04 in this 10G
partition? Do you have any suggestions? Do you recommend otherwise, what
about another release? This is a personal use machine with no special
applications [I need alternative to Vista] and I'll share any
experiences with you.
This Toshiba has only 512MB, but that can be increased and I can add
another disk for Ubuntu use. Any comments and help appreciated.
