    Finally got it! You just have to be dilligent about refreshing/reloading and eventually you'll get it.. although when you click update/continue/etc during the ordering process you might have to go back and hit it again. I'm also downloading with BitTorrent to save server resources for everyone else :)

    This will be perfect for my old 1ghz machine I have hooked up with a KVM switch :)

    I was going to take advantage of this offer until I read this mini-review:

    Linspire: Linux With Strings Attached
    http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/article/0,aid,120096,00.asp

    Here's an excerpt:

    "With version Five-0, Linspire has crafted a Linux operating system that just about anyone can use--but these days, such a thing really isn't all that unique. Unfortunately, Linspire Five-0 distinguishes itself only with its custom applications and its penchant for repeatedly clawing at your wallet. Better Linux alternatives are out there."
