    ...my old desktop, booted up on Ubuntu 9.10 disk.

    Ethernet/Internet works, graphics card works, yippie!

    This box is a P-IV 2.66 ghrz 2 GB RAM 125 GB main drive 250 GB second drive.

    It has Windows XP on it, pretty degraded (slow as crap, the reason I got a new box a year ago).

    Runs quite well on this linux disc so I think I'll wait for the next release of Ubuntu (soon) and turn this into a linux desktop for Internet surfing/kids/guests. I'll leave my main box for serious photo/video and gaming.
