I had problems installing some newer distros on my laptop. Fedora Core
5 Froze durring install. CentOS 4.3 finished installing, but would not
boot. Gentoo's default kernel had frame buffer issues with my video
card. The laptop is a dog, and I didn't have a couple of days for stuff
to compile, so I ended up reverting to Core 4 on it.
It seems like older systems are getting more difficult to get working
these days. When I do have the time... Gentoo is going back on it.
Fedora is just too slow on it.
