I just tried out CrunchBang Linux (base on Ubuntu 8.10) and it works very nicely on my laptop. It's a black 'lightweight' desktop
it matches my laptop's body (look sexy) . I had to install it by pulling out SD to IDE adapter and plug it to 44pin IDE to USB. Then ran the desktop on CrunchBang Linux Live cd then plug in the drive to USB. I ran installation and sure enough it did reconize same thing SCSI Flash memory adapter.. I proceed installing it and finished it off with Grub without rebooting. I unplugged and removed adapter from IDE to USB then plugged it back into my laptop. Because laptop's external CDrom drive is crappy like it still can't fully install Xubuntu and CrunchBang Linux.
It booted up to my laptop perfectly fine and it's a very simplistic Ubuntu Fluxbox. It ran as fast as Puppy Linux (thank goodness!) and now I am able to use Ubuntu's terminal!!!!! that something I'm good at.
I will be working on Blackberry modem software. I finally extracted Blackberry_modem.pet to Tar.Gz format via Puppy's terminal and saved it to my BB Curve's flash memory so it's easier for me transfer to Ubuntu. I will have to see if it works or not. I forgot to write down where the Blackberry_modem files supposed to go. I will run Puppy and install and see where it went then do the same to CrunchBang Linux
