Hi, im bsically new to linux, im trying to flix the switch slowly. So i've tried to put DSL on my old p1 laptop (syslinux, boot from hd) (give it a second live) but I can only boot in Failsafe and select a resolution of 640x480 in 4bit, anything else cause the laptop to make a greenscreen and never boot.
I've tried puppy linux, and it appear I can boot with Xorg at 1024x768 witch is nice.
My laptop is a Thinkpad 760ED with 2mb of videoram i Beleive. (133mhz, 65mb ram, 2GB hd to be replaced with 512mb CF)
Would compiling Xorg for DSL be a good choice?
I've found a guide on google, but it seems rather complexe since I've never compiled anything on linux (im noob)
