Ubuntu might work on your laptop. Download a copy and give it a try. It's easy to do as the Ubuntu CD is a hybrid installer / LiveCD, so, when you boot using the CD, you get an almost fully-functional Ubuntu running directly from the CD + the option to run the installer app to install the OS to your harddisk.

You might want to mull over the reasons why you want to change your OS first, though. Are there any specific reasons you want to change over? Any apps you want that aren't available for Windows, or that would run better under Linux? If all you're looking for is a change of scenery, a new shell might be more the thing. Try [url]www.litestep.net[/url], or googling around.

ubuntu doesnt work on the laptop.

i've read on ubuntu forums that they cant get it to work.

think i should try opensuse?

all im after is an alternative to windows really, just wanting to try different things.

Its a shame ubuntu doesn't work as i used it when i had a desktop pc and found it an excellent os.I tried several flavours of linux back then and my two favourites were ubuntu and fedora core.Unless they have changed much since i last used them then both are fairly easy to keep updated.I also tried suse but didn't enjoy using that as opposed to the other two i mention.Bear in mind that linux is totally different from windows so do some research regarding file structure,command line,terminal,switch user etc so you know what to expect.

There are plenty of linux forums so maybe your best option would be to try and find someone with the same laptop already running linux.

quick look at ubuntu forums and the geeks cracked it. they can now get ubuntu on this laptop.

its just a case of me waiting for a step by step guide on how its done.

Do you need to dual boot with Wndows? If not then just follow the setup from the CD, its very straightforward.

Dual Booting with Windows is easy enough too, just make sure to backup first incase it all goes wrong.
