I have now moved to Lubuntu and it is amazing! Probably the right choice for this hardware

comment Fixing display issues on Intel 82845GL
When you say hardware errata...do you mean its buggy hardware? (i.e. stuff that can never be resolved?). I fixed the video problem using 'nomodeset'. I have tried modifying 'xorg.conf' to manually enable the Intel driver as per this page. This just results in a black screen after splash. What else can I do? I'll post dmesg and Xorg.log if it can help

Yeah, it's down to buggy drivers (& hardware too it seems). I have managed to install and run Unity 2D successfully using the 'nomodeset' option...but the system response is visibly laggy. Any suggestions on what else can be done?
