Hi Scott! 
Here is a novice answering so take it for what it is
I had Ubuntu among other distros ( Xandros, SuSE,
Mandrake and Knoppix) working for about 6 months. It
worked find on my old machine (500 Mhz, S3 Trio video
card) then Kubuntu came along a few weeks ago and the
latest Ubuntu. I have tried installing and running
both without any luck. I have both the live CD and the
install CD for both.
That being said I couldn't run or install PCLos,
Simply Mepis with another special one based on PCLos
and Mandrake for a few weeks, until last week when I
finally found the right cheatcode working on my
specific machine.
I checked in all cases the Md5sums but I am still
hoping that when I'll received the official release of
Ubuntu I can make it work.
So, for about 6 months Ubuntu worked fine for me,
could see all the other distros and the other (Win XP)
machine on the network.
