I am totally new to Linux and have a laptop I want to totally dedicate to learning Linux. I have heard that there are compatibility issues with certain distributions for AMD/ATI machines. Basically I am looking for an easy distribution that comes with graphics/desktop environment that is compatible with my hardware. Toshiba Satellite A215-S6816, AMD Turion 64x2 TL-64 Processor, ATI Radeon HD2400 Graphics card. Someone please help me find a distro that will work on this machine. I tried Kumbuntu 10.10 and failed due to graphics driver issues. Thanks for any advice!

Interesting since ATI has been supported for awhile.

Ubuntu is probably the best distribution for the linux begineer. Fedora might be another good choice.
