Very strange question - probably most (all ???) of them; possibly with a bit of work.
I managed to get several to work o.k. on a 1100.

optimist,

check here: http://tuxmobil.org/dell.html http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/dell.html

Gentoo, Ubuntu and fedora core came up tops.

But any distro should work it's all preference

Jacook! Thanks.

I tried too install FC4. But when the installation finished and I tried to reboot the system it stopped booting. There was the message : "Initializing ... starage network" and booting stopped. What went wrong? Where to find the reason? Is there any way out? I think there is a proplem with hardware. I never had such a problem while installing FC4 on desktop PC. Can anyone tell me what to do? Thanks.
