    I need it to run on a 30 year old toaster (not really) and works well with old nvidia cards. Ubuntu and Fedora aren't cutting it.

    I never heard of that before. I'm not a Linux guru, I'm just throwing whatever little I can offer out there.

    I know the feeling :)

    Although on another note, I used my Puppy CD to resize my NTFS partition and ever since Lubuntu (my main distro) sets the owner as the first user to mount it, sets it as read/write for the owner, and nothing for other users. It doesn't really affect me too much, but it does get annoying sometimes (having to reboot it to log on as a different user, etc.).
