Still in old laptop hell

I'm still trying to get Alice's laptop to work. The newer Linux's work fine with the wifi card but mess up the sound card. I have to find something that works with both. Fortunately the wifi card is so old and common that most of the operating systems will work with it. I've only found a couple of systems that work with the sound, on the other hand. When I do find something that works I have troubles getting it to load. A lot of my CDs are made with re-writable media. There is something about those disks that make them unreliable.
I need to mow the lawn but I don't think I'll get to it since the county Democrats are meeting tonight. I should have enough time to run home and see if I got my latest operating system to load. Then I'll run off to the Democrat meeting. Maybe I'll try to get something mowed since I have to go to Iowa City tomorrow.
I have an appointment to see my shrink. I'm taking my car since the van makes it an all day deal. I'll have to spend half a day as it is.
