Hey guys - just joined CP through BOINC on a 12-yr old Dell laptop. I rebuilt it with max ram 2Gb and a Linux Mint distro. Very happy with the stability and spped relative to what is was doing in the Win XP days.

Welcome aboard!

Operating System Linux

Does that distro include 32-bit libraries? (They are required to run CPDN.)

See this post. (It is part of a long Thread on running on 64-bit Linux.)

Best of luck.

Whether you use Linux or Windows, Boinc projects won't run any faster. Using such an old computer is a waste of electricity.
