Well, after many long hours of installing, we finally got this OS on our lappy.  This 32 bit machine was a gift and we had previously tried an older version of PCLinuxOS.  It seemed to be very slow.  So, we switched to Peppermint.  Uf.  A humble suggestion / if you're going to install on a 32 bit machine, choose the basic install and the non-special (LV i think) file system.  i wish there had been an option to install just a super basic system that would install quick.  Nowadays i suspect it's just easier to d/l and install the updates and new programs you want, but trying to install a whole system from a DVD is... something else.

Anyway i updated the system and installed VLC, LibreOffice, Krusader, Dillo - of all things, and the XFCE files just in case...

Tried Firefox on the website but it was as slow as molassas in December.  Am using Dillo right now and it seems to be more or less o.k. on the Peppermint site and i need to try it on the Khan Academy site.  i'd like to loan this lappy to a young friend who had just graduated to junior high and still has problems with additon and subtraction / not to mention multi. and division.

We have been using PCLinuxOS for the last - ten years maybe?  Really like it and the forum is very friendly.  So it just works on all our 64bit computers.  We know how much it takes to maintain something like an OS, so our sincere thanks to the devs who have made this one possible.  i wonder if it's possible to buy a 64bit motherboard for this case...  hmmm.  Something else to check out.
