Thanks for the link, I checked it out and am thinking I might want to 
tackle this sometime this weekend.  I have a Vaio GRX 560 with the 16.1 
inch screen and the memory stick slot.  It's odd you mention that Mandrake 
is problem on laptops, it has been the best for me on the Fujitsu laptop I 
have.  I had Suse 8.0, Red Hat 7.2 and Mandrake 8.2 on it and Mandrake has 
been the best so far of the three.  I stopped using Suse because of what I 
was hearing about their involvement with United Linux and figured I would 
bail before I got hooked on it.

Contemplating the switch on the Vaio.....
