It's Mepis 8 that I've been trying (to avoid KDE 4.x if possible).

Livecd failure on netbook

I have had Mepis 8 happily installed on 4 of my machines (3 desktops and a laptop) for some time. Unfortunately I cannot persuade the livecd to fully boot on my new netbook (Packard Bell Dot-MA, 2Gb Ram, AMD L110 cpu, ATI x1270 graphics, 250Gb hdd).
