Will Ubuntu ore Lubuntu work on my old Windows ME PC, or will I have to try an older edition of L/Ubuntu -If so what version?
Try Lubuntu 13.04 32-bit or Ubuntu GNOME 13.04 32-bit, if they don't work, you probably need something called a non-PAE kernal, so install Lubuntu 12.04 32-bit and then run the following commands in a Terminal (press
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:prof7bit/fake-pae sudo do-release-upgrade sudo do-release-upgrade
That should upgrade you to Lubuntu 13.04. You can then install Ubuntu GNOME for 'fuller' Ubuntu experience (it has the Ubuntu system tray in the top-right).
sudo apt-get install gnome
To remove Lubuntu:
sudo apt-get remove lubuntu-desktop
