i was trying to install it on my netbook, to assess its suitability.
it runs Linpus, a light weight distribution of the redhat persuasion.
had no luck with that, so i tried using the new ubuntu netbook remix from a usb stick, and used the .deb file for installing it. worked like a charm, until i tried installing all of the maps at once. the netbook has only 1/2 gig of memory, so it was a little too much for it.
