First of all, WHO HAS A nx6325? I know through previous discussions that there are several people around.

My experience so far:
Because of the SATA HDD in the notebook a native install wouldn't work and therefore I started with a VMware virtual machine and move the working machine with some modifications with the hdd driver so it would recognize the hdd and boot up fine. Basis was the JaS 10.4.8 DVD or the tubegirl one, I'm not sure which one I ended up with because I tried both at the same time. Then I went through some trouble with the LoginWindow but one version I found somewhere worked fine but the info screeen didn't work and would crash if I would open it. WLAN was working right out of the box, didn't try LAN. The real issues were the graphic card (I couldn't figure it out and get one of these natit or titan ones running but with the bootoption I was able to change to the highest resolution) and the sound card (also tried some of the sound drivers around but again failed). The thing that made me stop was the temperature of my harddisk because it was getting really hot - I felt - 37°C I think - but it doesn't seem too bad because I'm getting these temps now under Windows too.
I would like everyone who has this notebook to speak up and we might be able to solve these problems in a united effort! Maybe even people with the same components (graphic and sound) can speak up if they got closer to a solution.
