A word of caution: my ancient Sony Vaio runs FreeBSD (5.x) just fine (or
at least it did until the harddrive packed up ;), but I've never been
able to get it to boot Knoppix, MoviX, Geexbox or any other Linux live

It works great with though (even to the point
where we can watch films with mplayer), so you might wanna try that

Good luck!
