comment Most suitable Linux distro for a ~2003 laptop
I agree on the Ubuntu advice. I'd try to upgrade your RAM if possible when running any Linux - 1GB is cheap and will make a big difference.

You can stream HD video with Homeplug AV plugs. See these tests - reghardware.co.uk/2007/01/15/review_devolo_dlan_200_avdesk/…

comment 2nd/3rd version of wireless network appears
I use a Buffalo router running Tomato, but I think this is more of a problem with the wireless clients, not the server.

comment Can't get IP address from range expander on SOME devices
Maybe the repeater is too far from the main router, so lower power devices can't detect the signal? Can they connect to the main router's wireless? (Do you like the Palm Pre BTW?)

comment How to use Notepad++ on Redhat?
You should be able to check the Redhat version by looking through your system application menus to find an About screen. It's there, but it will take some hunting.

comment How to use Notepad++ on Redhat?
Linux handles software installations differently from Windows. Instead of downloading .exe files and installing them directly, Linux centralises software installations in a package manager. Redhat should have an "add/remove software" option in the menus. Use that to find an advanced text editor or wine. Which version of Redhat are you on?

comment Best Secure Encryption for Zip Files via Linux
Encryption compresses files anyway. If rock solid encryption is more important than file size, you should consider using GPG.

comment Failure: This torrent is not registered with this tracker
utorrent allows you to add more trackers. Right click on the trackers tab. There's a good chance the openbittorrent tracker is mirroring it too. openbittorrent.com. Once you are connected, PEX should give you more sources.

comment LAN Home Network with router + Wifi internet
I have googled around and can't find anything - as I'm sure you did too. Can you delete the network and start again in Windows 7?

comment LAN Home Network with router + Wifi internet
Just to be totally clear - is the "wifi usb card" a short range 802.11 wireless card or a 3G wireless modem?

comment LAN Home Network with router + Wifi internet
On all the home routers I have used, wireless and wired clients are on the same network, get IP addresses in the same same range and can share files.
