Welcome!

The last couple of days I've been running VL5.9rc3 on an old bakelite lappy with an AMD-k6 450Mhz, 160MB RAM (it came with 32MB, but I added a little back in 2001) with 4GB disk space. It preforms very well, and it's wireless Wink

My other Ferrari, an 1.5Ghz is a portable DVD player since the space bar broke off :-(

VL should work well for you.  I installed 5.9 Standard today on a Dell Lattitude CPi with 128MB RAM, PII-366 CPU, and a 5GB hard drive.  I wouldn't call it a speed burner, but it's much better than the Windows 2000 that was on it before.
