I'm going to give FC4 a whirl and see how it reacts.

In a way I'm pretty upset, I keep asking myself "Why do I even bother with 
linux." I still don't know the answer.

I just spent $1,200 on this HP Pavilion with 1G ram, AMD Turion 64 
processor, an ATI Radeon express 200M Graphics card, and a DVD-R/RW and I 
had faith that linux would work just fine on it.

Now I actually caught myself in the shower this morning telling myself I 
wouldn't recomend Linux if it was the last thing on the face of the earth.

Yeah I think I'm talking out my rear-end, but the fusturation just keeps 
mounting everytime something like this happens.
