Ubuntu I think you rejected my solution a bit too fast. anyways You can also try ubuntu from a live cd which doesn't require you to install anything. Yes you can cancel your setup at this point your vista should still work and you can do that.

    to get it to use 70% you would need to configure the partitions manually.

Manually partitioning my HD seems to be the better option and since I have the Live CD I'll give it a try before installing it. 
Thanks for the info.

How to install server ubuntu 10.04 with no flash drive just hard drive??


If you are connected to a network or internet you can do a net install

he network installer lets you install Ubuntu over the network. This is useful, for example, if you have an old machine with a non-bootable CD-ROM or a computer that can't run the graphical interface-based installer, either because they don't meet the minimum requirements for the live CD/DVD or because they require extra configuration before the graphical desktop can be used, or if you want to install Ubuntu on a large number of computers at once.

Reformat laptop with Linux


First you need to choose a linux distro, I suggest ubuntu since it is the easiest by far.

Steps for installing ubuntu -
1. go to http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download and follow the directions to burn a live cd
2. restart your computer with the live cd in the cd drive
3. you can choose to try ubuntu, test it out for a bit, and then install it from inside ubuntu, or you can install it directly from the menu you get when your computer boots up. When trying ubuntu, you can also mess around with the built in partition editor ( there is an option to format the whole drive when installing so you don't have to worry about formatting before installing)
4. Just follow the instructions and install, and then enjoy :)

Gateway says max RAM is two 128mb modules but heard two 256mb modules will fit...true?


You need to make sure you have a processor of at least 700mhz. Two 256MB modules no problem. Many times you can buy a used laptop on ebay (either 9300 or Compaq armada e500) with the two 256MB modules included a lot cheaper than just buying 2 new 256MB modules. The Compaq Armada and 9300 modules interchangeable. Either way, you can still buy 2- 256MB modules(PC100/133 SDRAM 144PIN LOW DENSITY) for under $40.00 shipped. Very easy to install. I suppose if you have a P4 processor you could even go larger. I use Linux, which is 3-4 times faster than windows anyways, with no viruses etc. I have two 9300 laptops running like so with no problems whatsoever. Extremely fast(with ubuntu), too! If you haven't tried Ubuntu operating system you haven't lived. I'm no computer geek and find it so simple and fast. Free downloads on internet or buy a Live CD on ebay for a buck to try out without having to install.

Install asus crw 5224a in ubuntu


I think that you have an internal unit not an external one like pictured.

Just hook it up like normal and try booting your system with an Ubuntu Live Cd in your drive. It should just work.

Ok... maybe you'll have to explore your BIOS to find how to let the system boot from a CD, but that's usually a bit of quick trial and error.

Good luck.

Odd GUI Problems


I recommend Ubuntu it's smart fast and the virus won't run on it! you could install it in a second partition on the hard drive (minimum space is 4 GB recommended is 8 G) or you can run it "live" using the CD. If you install it in a separate partition you can still use the computer and access your files from windows! I recommend you try it and install "clamtk" from Synaptic Package Manager. It is a virus scanner that detects Windows AND Linux viruses! It's also FREE! Who knows, you might just like Ubuntu too!

Did you try booting from the Ubuntu cd and ran the desktop live cd demo ? That will bypass the windows drivers and uses ubuntu stuff only so if that worked your instal should have worked. It sounds like it doesn't like your video card as a guess.

I've never had that problem in a install but I would bet they have on the ubuntu support forum.

http://ubuntuforums.org/

I think you will be able to get your answer there. If you can't find it using the search ( I tried. didn't) then post it and give a bit more info such as ubuntu version, and so on. Lots of good help there. Once you get it running you will be quite happy with it.

How to install linux on compaq presario cq40-144tu


hrm... i'll just assume that this is the first time you've attempted anything with linux? There are vairous Linux distributions, with the Ubuntu flavour seeming to be the best one for the windows to linux switcher (IMO). I would try a live Ubuntu disc first to make sure it's what you're after, which can be downloaded here

or if you're ready to dive straight in, here is the full version that you burn to a cd and then install
