Ok, I just got a new laptop and I was wondering if it was linux compatible. It is a hp pavilion ze4400. It has a 40gig hard drive and 192 meg of ram. It has a ATI IGP 320M video card. It also has a National Semiconductor Corp. DP83815/816 10/100 MacPhyter PCI Adapter for the network card. It has a conextant 56k aclink modem. It has a 02micro 0z6912 cardbus controller for the pcmcia adapter. The last thing is that it has a Conextant Amc Audio device. It's processor is an amd athlon xp 1.6 ghz. 2200
Tell me if this means anything to you. biggrin.gif
Thanks,
Andrew

Your machine specs are good enough to run the newest versions of Linux ... but wether or not all aspects work, I'm not sure.

This tells me it works:

But that setup wasn't perfect out of the box.

Ive never had any problems installing Linux on a lap top, the only issue I've ever ran in to is sometimes the display drivers are not very good and have to use alternate commands to start x, ie startx --bpp 24 etc. But one thing I would recommend is make sure you have linux drivers for your network card before you do the install, it makes things much easier when setting up networking and such.
