"All current Linux versions I've tried with new kernels simply won't
install at all, the install fails virtually before it even starts.
Ubuntu 9.10 (2.6.31), 10.04, Fedora, Mint, OpenSuse, all fail. Just some
CD activity and then they stop with a blank screen.

Although Suse gets further, with a screen of coloured blocks. It must be
a bug they have introduced in later kernels. My hardware is very
standard, although I do see other people have problems with the ASUS P5Q
series. Windows 7, Vista needless to say install and work flawlessly. It
is enough to put you off Linux altogether. Anyway, 8.10 does the job.
10.04 is nice, I have it on another machine, but on this one, just
impossible."

If a failure to install isn't enough to put you off Linux, successfully
installing and using it will be.

Looks like it's 5 Linux distributions down and only about 495 to go!!
I hope he has a lot of free time on his hands.
