It works, but will always start a Gnome desktop, no Cinnamon.
If I do a live boot from the same DVD on my much newer laptop, I get Cinnamon as expected.
On the old PC, I tried to logout and explicitly select a Cinnamon session, but no lock: I still get Gnome.
What could be causing this problem?

Oops, yes, you are right. Seems I ignored the term "much newer laptop".[...] he said in the original post that the livecd worked, he said it worked on a much newer system
