I don't have enough points to comment here
so am asking a new question.
I recently acquired an IBM T41 ThinkPad (Pentium M) that came installed with Ubuntu 12.04. I installed Windows XP over that, and now want to go back to Linux---specifically Lubuntu 18.04 LTS 32 bit.
When I type in "forcepae --- forcepae" at the outset it seems like it will work. The installation begins but soon after setting up the keyboard and scanning <...cdrom...> it freezes. I had hoped the older machine was just taking a long time to do something but after about 10 minutes I still have a blue screen. I tried installing several times, using both DVD and USB (Rufus). Same problem.
Any tips to help a non-expert?
