D'load sh*t lappie

Made a lean and mean install on the ancient Dell Inspiron 1000 lappie.
Went with an Ubuntu Minimal install, and on top of it a barebones XFCE; the whole thing took about 2 hours tops.
768 MB of RAM and a 80 GB HDD.
The thing feels pretty snappy.
I'm having a bit of trouble configuring the mouse pointer and getting the CAPSLOCK working as and extra Ctrl key.
Guess I'll have to use the old X Window DOT files config magic.
