HP Compaq nx9501 (and Presario r3000us)

by Woof / December 31, 2004 1:07 AM PST

1. Are HP Compaq nx9501 and Presario r3000us the exact same laptops internally? I gather both (with AMD 3000+ cpu) are 32-bit crippled versions of the 64-bit r3000z?

2. As a likely buyer of the good value nx9501, I NEED confirmation that the nx9501 WILL boot Knoppix. Do you happen to know? From linux-on-laptops it is known to run Gentoo livecd, SuSe9.1 and Mandrake10. The r3000z will run Debian among others.

The store will not let me boot a livecd.
