after trying several distros on a AMD duron 751 MHz with 113 RAM (which I am donating to a club, so not interested in spending more money) VL SOHO 5.9 managed to install [whew - at last!). I was hoping to use openoffice but Kspread seems OK.
The trouble is, after opening Kspread (and maybe Kword - haven't tried), spreadsheets take several minutes to load, and seem a little sluggish. I used (I hope) 1G for swap drive which is probably excessive: should I change that (how?)
I am wondering whether to try to reinstall windows and setting up dual boot. (10G hard drive) but don't really know how to do that - I tried typing in fdisk and cfdisk but that doesn't work - guess I need to know the parameters. is it fdisk /mbr?
