I tried to boot the Suse live cd on a Compaq TC1000 tablet pc last night. Just wanted to see if it would load. It has an external cd rom. It booted to the cd to the menu and selected boot the os option not install.

It gave me the splash screen but even after an hour the system never came up. the cd stopped spinning and it just sat there.

has anyone ever tried to load suse on a tc1000 tablet pc? I dont care if I lose the tablet functions. I just want it for email on the road etc. xp is a dog on a 900mhz processor it has.

The cd works on another system so I know its good.
