I just got Ellysa Xfce running on a Compaq Presario 5001CL with an 800 Mhz AMD Duron cpu, 768 mbs RAM, and an XFX 7600GT XXX video card. The RAM is maxed out at 768 mb. The video card is, probably a bit much for this machine. I think I have one a little more fitting for this machine. It's a Nvidia TNT2 Vanta video card which is what this machine originally had in it.
How does it run? As a matter of fact it runs quite nice. A heck of a lot better than it run WinXP. I hope I can still find a bigger Duron for it. A 1.2 ghz will max this board out.
This machine, also, dualboots along with Win2K. No reason for it; I just had an old machine and nothing to do.
