    Ubuntu may be my next tryout on the spare. Anything in particular you want to share about it, champagne?

    I think you'd like it. From what I've heard I think the standard installer is supposed to be slightly simpler than the new sarge installer, but I chose the expert install option so that I could pass a module parameter, so I can't say from experience. Mind you, the new sarge installer is not hard itself.

    Once it's installed everything is set up for you very nicely. It comes with Gnome, but you can easily replace that if you don't like it. I will say that they have gnome set up very nicely right off the bat though. Also, installing the nvidia drivers is incredibly easy...even easier than with Kanotix.

    They'll force you to have a separate home partition though...so be prepared for that. It's also initially setup so that everything is done by the normal user using sudo. You can set a password for root...but it won't be set until you choose to set one. Give it a shot sometime.

    But will it really support KDE fully? I am running into a similar situation with the Beast, Fedora. I have gotten KDE 3.3 on there but it's half-hearted for want of a better word Apparently Fedora was made for gnome and that's all there is to it. Maybe that was why I passed on it a few weeks ago. Separate home, I supposed I could repartition the spare partition.

    I haven't tried installing KDE nish, but I don't see any reason that you would have trouble with it. This is not fedora after all, it's just a customized debian distro. :P And I did look and can tell you that all of the KDE packages seem to be available in the ubuntu universe repository.
