I've had Lubuntu and Windows XP dual boot for a long time. After some XP updates, it did something with the Linux boot such that I couldn't dual boot.
I finally got in and updated Lubuntu and completely removed Windows. My Sis video wont let me in now: Screen's Frequency Out of Range
I tried many solutions that did not work: removing
#GRUB_GFXMODE=640*400 worked for three startups, but failed on the fourth. The Live CD works fine until installed.
I give up and tried slitaz 4 and slitaz 3 and neither worked, but both work fine on my other laptop.

My USB Xpud and Browser Linux 501 boot I don't know how to install Xpud if I would want to for this is a desktop. Browser Linux 501 seemed to have issues on Live USB that don't happen on mini laptop so didn't try install. other OS like DSL etc. I know don't want. So I dug out Ubuntu 9.10 and it works fine. I know its unsupported, but every upgrade I try SiS video fails! I could live with 9.10 except even the best from
/old-releases is Firefox 3.6.17
How/where/could FireFox 5.0.1 work on Ubuntu 9.10 or will it need packages I cant install? (I'm pretty sure anything past Firefox 5.0.1 wont work in 9.10 - but didn't 9.10 have chromium ? I don't see it)
This is a northbridge and southbridge chipset (SiS741GX/SiS964L) with an overclocked Sempron. Any ideas on how to upgrade without changing any of the SiS video drivers in 9.10 that work great to a newer Ubuntu or a way to roll back to them before restarting would work?
