Hi everyone,

i know this question has been asked quite a bit however nothing seems to work for myself.

i have an old Lifebook Fujitsu Siemens that only seems to boot from floppy disks, i managed to install XP using the boot discs made by their program and a USB DVD drive, however i cant seem to install Linux using a similar method i am not really bothered what linux distro just as long as it has a graphical interface and has the General applications like and office package, firefox.

can any help me please.

thank you

I'd personally ditch the *old* laptop and get a newer one from EBAY - only a few $$ and then boot from the DVD drive

2.4 GHz Quad Q6600 (x4) CPU
4 Gb RAM
*nice* 20Mbits fiber link
