Hey David--

Sometimes perseverence has nothing to do with it.  Sometimes you just
need professional help.  This is not a slight on you by any means.
:-) Linux on laptops, linux on newer hardware, linux in dual boot
situations, these all require special knowledge that is hard to
acquire through book-larnin'.  Installing Linux can be like building a
computer from components: all the parts are usually of high quality
and easily accessible, but it can be easy to screw up.

Take Randall up on his offer. :-)
