My suggestion: go back to Win XP. It appears that Vista is in the
same sorry class as Win Millenium. It may be worth the $130 or so
USD to buy the disk.
Another suggestion. Download and burn a Knoppix CDR. Try that on
your machine. It may recognize your Nvidia hardware. I was told
that Windows XP could not be put on my wife's new HP laptop with
Vista, but the Knoppix disk ran like a champ. If not, then you
have wasted some time and created a coaster. If so, then a Debian
install may be in order. Even Knoppix itself can be installed on
hard disk with a little googling and work.
