This is neat.  I can use it.  I have a computer upstairs which runs the printer 
and is occasionally used 
on line.  It is currently on hardy heron as I have an install disk for that and 
am afraid to upgrade on
the reason that I think a real upgrade would be beyond the capacity of this 
turn of the century machine.

 Yeah, but a GEM based
 hyperterminal would be that much more cool J  -Toby  From: Louis Santillan

 Don't run Xubuntu.  I went through that with an
 ancient notebook.
 Xubuntu would install and technically run, but was snail
 slow.
 
 Posters on the Ubuntu forums suggested the Ubuntu had a
 steadily
 advancing idea of what "low end" was, and that too
 much Gnome had
 crept into Xubuntu.  They suggested what I did: get the
 minimal CD,
 install to get a working CLI environment, then pick and
 choose other
 things via apt-get.  Lxde run on an ext4 file system is
 usable.
 
 And you may not want the latest Ubuntu release.  I had
 to wipe and
 start over from scratch after attempting to upgrade to
 13.04.  It
 turns out the kernel in that release requires PAE support
 that my old
 machine doesn't have.  But the upgrade didn't
 check for that till the
 last step of installing the kernel.  The kernel install
 failed, the
 video system was hosed on reboot, and re-doing from scratch
 was the
 only real solution.
