thx @ hatha_ph
m enjoying VL on this ole truck...
sounds scary ... tryed lots of things on the T20 and working with my 80gig HD wich has some trouble reading data at thje initial blocks. But since i splitted into two main partitions plus one small swap and one for the T20 as cosy bed to "sleep" (like the tiny moon beside the battery led) it works fine.
The last OS i used before coming on VL7 were antiX, Bodhi, PCL and absolute linux. The last one worked quite good.
The T20 loves Slackware i guess
Got my wifes ancient tower with a cruel mix of antique HW flying fast as a saturn five. And the graphic card does no more freeze, only mounting partitions and drives seems to be an issue. Looking later on this forum for solutions ...
saludos to Texas!
