Well, i couldn't get a proper video card driver loaded on it.  I tried 
several drivers from ATI's and Sony's websites.  They all failed with a 
file not found error.  I was stuck with 640x480, which is pretty dumb on 
a 1024x480 screen.  That said, it seemed to run pretty well on that machine.

I just tried installing xubuntu.  The installer on the normal ISO didn't 
start, so i downloaded the alternate ISO, the text mode install is 
going, but it's past my bedtime, so who knows when I'll have time to go 
any farther with it...
