installing antix linux on a 256mb ram laptop

so with the reviews i decided to go for antiX linux for my old laptop.

It failed to burn to my cd with error 8000 so i used linux mints usb image burner ( found in accessories) to burn it to a usb drive.

On booting it takes you to the desktop .it may take some time to boot
 You can double click in the install option on the desktop and then enter the password "root" to start the install . The install may not work if the disk is not partitioned well

so from the menu use the partition utility and partition the hdd

make one ext4 partition for  /
one swap
