> Hello,
> Acer has recently released a very compact desktop (EL 1600) with a decent configuration (Intel Atom CPU, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, dvd drive, etc.) at a very tempting price. i couldn't resist getting one for myself.
> However, when i tried my stock Ubuntu 8 and Fedora 9 CDs for installation, they failed. i couldn't even run Ubuntu from the CD.
> i will post more error information in a later post, but thought of sending this out early, so if anyone has ideas, please help.

It will be more helpful to know the errors, so it's easier to identify
exactly where the problem lies. It is unlikely that this PC does not
support Linux. The fact that it is priced low in order to achieve
higher sales, they will probably want to bundle it with a free OS, if
I have an Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz and I've installed all kinds of
Linux(es) on that, without a glitch.
