I've just had a look at VectorLinux and I'm very, very impressed.
I've run up the live CD on three different systems, each of different specs and it behaved perfectly in each one.
So I decided to install V on the oldest system which is a pre-2000 IBM Aptiva with 128Mb RAM
The installation went well, right up to the final step (just after confirming the x system) and hung. This was at the point when I would have expected the little clock mouse pointer/icon to appear, but it didn't get that far.
This system has previously had Damn Small Linux on it and it worked OK, but DSL is nothing like VL so I would really like to get VL working properly.
Any ideas, anyone?
