can anyone recommend a well supported linux that i can (easily)  
install on an older dell?
my first choice would be planetccrma except there is some issue with a  
fedora X library and juce that im not sure i can solve beyond waiting  
for the next release of fedora.
my next choice would be gentoo but their livecd doenst even boot.
these are the only linux versions that i know work well (well, at  
least planetccrma works well but ive heard good things about gentoo)

anyway i dont want an installer that boots me in a shell as superuser  
and tells me to run fdisk! (my second attempt at booting gentoo)
