Of course, that is certainly a fact. But my problem seems to be the opposite. When I checked out different distros some of them didn't work on my new computer but worked fine on the old one. My friend, who is a Linux guru, told me that it could be like that because some distros don't have support yet for brand new hardware.
What surprizes me, however, is that the Elyssa live CD worked well, but not the Felicia.
