I suggest you go ahead and burn the LiveCD image you downloaded to a
CD and see if this OS will run, properly, on your HW, before you
install it. If so, then download the CD's or DVD for a regular
install. Hang onto the LiveCD, in case you need to test on other HW,
in case you have a problem and need to rescue, or if go out of town
and want to run on someone elses HW without leaving tracks.
