For future reference, the user can go backwards to Windows XP or 
forward to Windows 7. The Windows Vista environment is often 
troublesome. When I bought my wife a new laptop a while back it came 
with VIsta.  The manufacturer (HP) said Win XP would not work on it. 
That may or may not be the truth. So after experimenting with 
Slackware I installed Knoppix. My wife is happy, the computer is 
happy, I am happy.
