Damn this is slow as, PD820 CPU, which is the prescott dual core @ 2.8Ghz, XPP with 1.5Ghz...I noticed the screen lagged with crtl\alt & del, you could see the refresh redraw the dialog box...
Anyway, I have been running SP3 upgrade 3 hrs so far!!!, have changed memory and the damn thing locks everytime I try to test the drive!....chipset drivers are up to date, will do a memory test, however not sure on the lag!?

Ubuntu is normally a live flavour or can be installed. Boot it and see.

Pretty sure the CD is the same.
When you boot off it you get the option of Live or Install, just choose the Live option. :D

Are the updates coming through Via the automatic option ( yellow shield) ? if so sometimes they get stuck. :sleep

If you are attempting the Auto, cancel it and run a manual update.
