Kubuntu Works Fine with Compaq Core Duo V3000

Just received a call from my friend , Husna regarding Linux Installation in Compaq Core Duo V3000 Laptop.

She came last two week to install Linux for NS2 Simulation . That day we tried to install Ubuntu 6.06 and 7.04. And XandrOS 2.0. After 3 - 4 exhaustive hours we failed to install it T_T.

For XandrOS installation every options (press CTRL button during the early CD boot to view the option) has been tried out , but it fails.

For Ubuntu , it cannot even read the installation CD for the installation.

So today, she told me that , the installation already successful!! with help from one expert at her workplace. From her experience , she says that Fedora works fine with the laptop. But since we have bad experience with Read Hat variants for long NS2 simulation time, she skipped this option.

Other success is the Ubuntu 7.10 can be installed using Live CD , but some display problem occurs . maybe because of the resolution?

However she tried to install Kubuntu (forgot to ask the version number). And it works fine.
Congratulation Husna! Next step is to install NS2.
