So much for that...

The linux install is going to have to wait. I'm experiencing a bit of wonkiness with the CD-ROM drive that came with the tablet (as in it's recognized by the OS, but won't mount any disks and isn't recognized by Smart Boot Manager) and I've got some issues with the discs I made from the .iso images in the first place.

On the other hand, it's working under Windows 2000 and I just confirmed that I can use Picasa as my slideshow software on the machine. I've spent the last two hours loading patches (no big surprise, and I'm not done yet) and getting ready to load Windows Defender (I think it runs under Win2k) and Symantec AV 9 to get the machine a bit more beefed up. It'll make a reasonable digital photo frame as-is.

Probably still worth investing in a few more "bare" tablets for more photo frames, whether or not I get back to trying out linux on it.
