Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

Was running Diaper before I got my new system just last week. Thought to myself, I'll try herd5 and see how it goes on this new beast of mine. Well no show for me, partition manager is broken, just hangs at selecting use free disc space(I got a free spare disk just for Ubuntu). Tried diaper again, same thing ;) OK then, tried diaper live cd, kernel panic at loading. Hmmm download herd5 live cd seeing as my hardware is pretty new. Same again, kernel panic at loading linux. Oh well, maybe next version will work ;)

Asus P5N32-SLI Premium mobo
4gig Kinmax ram
E6600 Core2 duo cpu
Nvidia 8800GTX GPU
2 sata drives not raided
1 dvd/cd burner

It's all suppose to be linux compatible, I purchased it that way and linux drivers exist for all of it. I'd hate to see people try and install on systems that weren't linux compatible. XP installed without incident incase your were wondering(It's what 6 years old FFS!)

I'm told other dists install just fine on same system exactly, pitty, I like Debian based more - Oh well!

Oh and tried all the criptic boot params, noapic and such...
