I Suggest to try to boot Knoppix CD (it wont touch your diskdrive) http://www.knoppix.net/get.php

Knoppix (Debian based and compatible as Testing/Unstable). can be used as a Boot CD or Installed to the HardDisk.

Xandros is a Commercial Linux Distro, it is based on Debian and they are recruiting beta testers to improove their system.

But this is an opportinity for Laptop owners, to have some pple working on better hardware support.

I hope their work will somehow also contribute to the OSS Projects like XWindow, Debian etc

Books For Linux Nomads Scott Mueller: Upgrading and Repairing Laptops, 2003

Amazon Order http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0789728001/rzr/#

Scott Mueller goes where no computer book author has gone before right past all the warranty stickers, the hidden screws, and the fear factor to produce a real owner's manual that every laptop owner should have on his desk. This book shows the upgrades users can perform, the ones that are better left to the manufacturer, and how to use add-on peripherals to make the most of a laptop. The CD contains one-of-a-kind video showing just what's inside a portable PC.
