Welcome to the forums!

Ubuntu's hardware requirements are published here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...mRequirements/

For older computers such as yours they recommend Xubuntu or Lubuntu rather than the flagship Ubuntu.

The best way to tell if it will work is to burn a Live CD and take it for a test drive (try without installing). Simple and easy instructions here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/...re-you-install

Good luck!

Thanks for your help, I now have Ubuntu running on my Inspiron 1150, and it's performing nearly as good now as when it was brand new.
