    As you can see below, mine is very similar, untill you get to the Capabilities.
    I was wondering if the onboard controller may support agp, but obviouslydoesn't.

    The commercial software will not come on the free DVD, but after you
    install from the DVD you can set up your mirrors (http://www.easyurpmi.zarb
    for an easy selection), update, and then get the commercial stuff you need
    from the mirrors. Depending on the package, it will be in non-free or
    plf-free or plf-nonfree.

    If you "upgrade," there will be problems with config files that will have to
    be changed. My shift from 2007.1 to 2008.0 was an "upgrade," and it
    was several weeks before I had the wrinkles worked out of my system to
    satisfaction.

    A clean install in a new partition is a much better solution.

    If it was available for 10.1 in any package (PowerPack, whatever) it should
    be on the mirrors for the current system. As stated, you may need to
    have the plf-free, plf-nonfree, and non-free mirros enabled.
