Cool Installing Linux on Sony VGN-FE670G


I recently received a Sony Vaio VGN-FE670G and was wondering what would be the best version of linux to install and how to go about activating all the hardware.

I was thinking of installing Ubuntu but am unsure of what to do once it's installed. I am computer savvy and know what I'm talking about so no need to water it down, but simpler would be better (as I've never had linux on a pc before).

Thanks ahead of time and look forward to using linux!

linux on sony vaio

I recently installed Open Suse Linux on a Vaio and was expecting to have to install all kinds of extras for hardware compatibility, but was surprised to find that everything worked "out the box". I was expecting to have to install drivers for the touch pad, usb ports etc, but they all worked fine.

This link maybe helpful if you do run into any problems
http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/VAIO+Linux.html

(although just noticed its dated 1998....but like i said, my installation on a vaio required nothing added so maybe recent versions support the vaio better)
