No real idea why. It always work on everything else.
I still do like ubuntu, but Debian has a much higher success rate for me, and it really isn't much different.

It worked fine on my P4 when I dabbled in it like three years ago. Even my old "craptop" which has a p4 on a 478 ran ubuntu.

Huh. I could never figure it out. It happened on 2 computers, not just one.

Haha. I used to call my old slimnote 9TE-233TZ the craptop.
I think it beat yours in crappiness. 233 mhz pentium 1

Another thing the OP could do with it is to create a jukebox.

You could hide it away somewhere and put a cheap old LCD and some speakers on a counter in your kitchen or living room or somewhere common. If you have a bit more money, buy a cheap old touch panel on ebay.

It's actually really nice to have if you have a lot of music.

EDIT: LOL yeah you will need a mouse too, but no keyboard. It just gets in the way. I use the on-screen keyboard.
