Well, i only played with it for about 20 minutes this morning before
left for work, but the xubuntu install finished overnight, and it came
up with a good X config that had proper graphics support, the PCMCIA
cd-rom worked, and everything seemed pretty good. It seemed a bit
sluggish, but i suspect that i could go in and get rid of some things
that i don't need to help it out.

I'm not too interested in Win2k on it. I would have considered Windows
Fundamentals, but based on my experience with xubuntu so far, i think i
know what it will run. :)
Does anyone have any advice on lightweight web browsers? I realize
that's an oxymoron these days, but I think firefox will be a joke on
this thing, and i haven't really used any other browser for quite some
time. I think Thunderbird will probably be ok, and pidgin will probably
run fine, xterm is no problem, and that is all i need on it.
