First off, if your comp was originally purchased with Vista installed, then it should have no problem as far as minimum hardware requirements to
run all Linux distros. BUT....you should always make a LIVE CD, DVD or flash drive to find if your hardware and you are compatible first. Using LIVE
will not make any changes to your computer. Just slower than using installed.
To save others a bit a time who are not familiar with Slitaz...such as me....
