One thing you could do is try a different Linux distribution: an easy way to
do this is to download a Linux boot disk (eg Knoppix or MandrakeMove,
or both! www.knoppix.org, www.mandrakesoft.com/products/mandrakemove)
Its an easy way to try out a new distribution without installing anything
on your hard drive. If your hardware all works "out of the box",
then you can install on the hard drive.
