Hi,
I always have a problem when I boot my Thinkpad A22p with a linux live CD (Ubuntu or Knoppix) the screen is "repeated" 3 times and hard to use. Should I boot with an option to use vga video driver to solve it? Any suggestions?
Thanks

Franco Bollo

If I recall correctly The VGA driver did solve this very issue for me. If you are not just testing and are doing a full install, the alternative install disk is usually the way to go with older hardware.
