Subject: Corel Linux on an ASUS T2-RS?

Hi guys,

I recently purchased an ASUS T2-R (Std) from Central 
Computers in Newark.  I am trying to install Corel Linux on 
it.  The installation program starts but stops and reboots 
before it gets far along enough to prompt me to do 
anything.  I understand that others have experienced this 
problem with Corel.

The system is described at

Central put in a Celeron D 335 (2.8GHz), WD 80 Gig hard 
drive, 256 mb ram, and installed a liteon DVD/CD rewritable 
drive from a burned out computer of mine.

The reason I want to install Corel is that I want to have 
WordPerfect and I have not been able to install WP on my 
other computer which has Mandrake 9.1.  You guys helped me 
set that computer up a couple of years ago.  I have WP 
which I bought from Cheapbytes.  I'm hoping to upgrade the 
Corel with Xandros.

If this makes any sense, let me know.  I would like to talk 
to you about this at the Robert Austin computer show or at 
Rick's house.  I won't show up if I don't hear from you.
