I still have one 64bits PC that I would like to try to set up as a server.
I also have an old Toshiba laptop that I have tried to install Linux on.
I tried Fedora, Suse, Mandriva and Centos, and none of them would run it for longer than a few minutes (some of them wouldnt even start it) before they froze it completely. I have very little knowledge of to fix the problems and did spend a lot of times searching google and forums, but wasn't able to get it running the way it should.
However when I tried a net-install of Debian it did run nicely.
Just out of the box, like we want it to do when we are newbees..
So, I think I would like to give Debian a chance now also.
