Installing Linux on Fujitsu Siemens E7010


Hi guys,
I decided to install Linux on my 2 years old laptop, a Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook E7010(Pentium IV 1.8, 512 Ram, HD 40GB, ATI Radeon 7500 32MB). Considering that I am a newbie and this laptop, which release would you recommend?

My selection, so far, is : Suse 9.2, Fedora Core 3, Mepis.

Please, I need your help and experience because I don't know what distribution I should choose!

I used a Fujitsu Lifebook that was provided by my employer last year. I installed Suse 9.0 Professional on it, and it worked beautifully! Unlike other laptop manufacturers, Fujitsu is not married to Windows or any other OS. Fujitsu, at least on that laptop I had, stuck to the Linux hardware compatibility list!

If you wish to use the Suse distro, install away.

Also, compiling new kernels for the Lifebook went without a hitch. Nice computer!
