Looking for a good linux for my laptop

Interface eth0 [Failed]
Then once it finished loading, I wasn't put into graphical mode, and was stuck sitting there in text command prompt only at the login (which i was able to log in, but still stuck in text prompt)
Any suggestions to a different version or solution to the problem?

Morphix is a really great distro! Just tonight it saved my ass as a rescue cd because I screwed around with my /boot/grub/grub.conf file! I dropped the Morphix cd into the beverage tray, mounted hda5 and fixed it in a matter of minutes! I had nothing else because my RH 9 install cd 1, which I could have used for rescue, got hosed somehow. Had it not been for that Morphix cd, I probably would be contemplating a re-install right about now... :x

Yes, Morphix runs entirely from cd. After what I went through last night I would reccommend everyone have a copy on hand, if just as a resue cd. We run Morphix-Gnome 4.1 on my wife's laptop too and love it!
Although you have Mdk 9.2 working, you don't have to download all the RH 8 cd's just the first three. You can get them here...
