My Adventures With Ubuntu in General Tech Discussion Posted March 30, 2009 try Sabayon Linux. Ubuntu is pretty slick and mostly plug'n'play, I don't know about the LiveCD, though. Altenatively you could download all 5 DVDs of Debian and install without needing internet. Also, your nVidia card is pretty old, AFAIK, you must use the 9775 version of nVidia drivers to get it to work, and Debian is the only Linux where I know they have it in their Repositories/DVD. However, try to get an internet connection on that computer.
