Help on new distro choices?

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.
