I have a rather old motherboard/processor and I'm trying to install a nice lightweight linux on it. However, I can never get through the installer because it's so slow. It took me over 400 seconds to attempt to bootstrap CrunchBang linux before I just shut it off.
It's a micro ATX with a 2.9Ghz single core CPU. 1.5GB of DDR memory and a PATA (the long flat serial cables) DVD-ROM. Could it be my PATA connection? Seeing as this is all with Live CDs.
