Well, that's solved.

I managed to install BeaFanatIX on the family eMachine. It's mostly based on Ubuntu 5.10 (or at least the version I have is), so it installed and ran quite fine, but in failsafe mode. Unfortunately, it doesn't recognize the soundcard, though it's a minor problem.
KateOS is still a viable option, I just have to install it first.

I'm trying to install beafanatix on an old Dell V333c...and altho it works fine as live-cd, I get errors on the hdd install attempt. Did you run into this with your install? And/or have any advice?
