Just educational experimenting!
To see whether I can improve performance on R31 Thinkpad installed with latest Xubuntu, I just installed Porteus 3.1 on the same only partition. Porteus resides there quietly; in root mode I can see all Xubuntu folders and files intact as usual, and I love the boot-up and screen manipulation speed. Only thing is the machine keeps only booting into Porteus whether I use F12 and F8 or not. Not a real big deal since I've still access to Xubuntu files but still need that dual-boot option since Xubuntu has the built-in drivers that make my RealTek 8180(?) wifi dongle go (if such can be installed into Porteus please let me know!) for net access. So can anyone recommend a Linux dual-boot menu maker?
