Linux stuffs

I have a varried history with computers so I though little of installing Linux, little did I know !

Linux has been sucessfully installed (to my satisfaction) on a P70 laptop and a P200 desktop (neither were capable of running a nice desktop, but that was fine for what i wanted them to do)

But recently I have had a hankering for installing Linux properly on a reasonable machine and have a complete windoze replacment.

The target was (is) a 1.4ghz AMD Thunderbird with 512mb, 30gb (plus a 20gb), CDRW, CDR and a Nvidia gForce2 MX. modded

It is important to note that these files contain steps that I took that FAILED so please read each one completly before copying any actions !!
