Linux on Intel Core Duo Macbook??


Does anybody know of a distro that will run on a new Macbook. I read that RedHat is working on it... but I'm not personally a fan of RedHat. If anybody has any news on this let me know!!

New Mac with an Intel processor is a usual PC-compatible computer. Any distro will fit it.

I have a macbook pro and tribooted WinXP, OSX and Ubuntu 6.06 dapper drake. Couldn't get X11 to start though because the ATI card needs special treatment.

Here is the best tutorial I've found yet. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=187465
