OK, I got a DVD drive for the machine now and can actually try out some
of the suggestions I couldn't before. I didn't have time last night to
try all of them yet though. In particular, the netbook respin was
still downloading when I went to bed.
So, Ubuntu 9.10 regular install CD will not sucessfully get me to a
desktop. The safe graphics mode installer will show me graphics, but I
don't know yet it it will install a properly working system, since I
bailed out to try some other things first.
Next up, the netbook respin, and then maybe a different distribution
