For CD/DVDs use good media, clean your drive regularly. And allow the drive to set it's own speed. (machine burns at about 16x) I've not had a Coaster when making a bootable ISO in many years.

Most important is good media and cleanliness.

There are several 'update-' commands that can be helpful, especially after a kernel change.

Choose (type in) init 3 at the GRUB boot screen. Then login a root. Then do an update-grub /dev/sdx Shere x is the GRUB that you want to boot from.

Somewhere I've posted about adding two sticks of 2 GB DDR2 at 800 to my ancient motherboard. I had to jigger the CL numbers to get a stable situation. However I was certain that there was no way to add 4 GB mondules. This gives me 8 gB of RAM and makes my machine as fast as it will ever be.

Using VESA till you can install a more recent kernel (one that will enable your graphics chipset) is all that's needed.
