The Quest For Ubuntu Continues (part 1)

Compaq Presario 5000 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

5000Z-5UVME2 (Internet PC)
    • 700-1200MHz AMD Duron/Athlon Processor
    • 20-60GB Seagate IDE Hard Disk Drive
    • 63-384MB PC133 SDRAM
    • 8-64MB S3 or nVidia Graphics Controller
    • 4 x USB 1.1 Ports (2 Front, 2 Rear)
    • 15-17" Compaq CV Series CRT Monitor
    • 56K Dial-Up Modem
    • JBL Platinum Series, Monsoon MH-500 or Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Speaker System
    • Compaq USB Internet Keyboard/Mouse or Smart Credit Card Keyboard/Mouse
    • CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, and/or CD-RW

I assume that since my computer is a plain 5000 Presario, and the processors match, that this is the correct computer. Except the hard drive doesn't match. I also don't have the said speaker system, and I most certainly do not have a dial up modem.

All of this will become relevant in the next post, as well as the knowledge in previous entries (that I am struggling to get Ubuntu on my old computer, and it's taking a lot of fucking effort).
