Linux distro advice req...


I am trying to find a distro of Linux that works 'out of the box' on an
Amilo M3438G. I have tried SUSE 9.3 and it was bit of a nightmare.
If anyone has got any distro working on an M3438G please let me know which one...

Cheers in advance

What type of computer is an Amilo M3438G? If it is a basic Intel or AMD PC with at least 256Mb RAM, try PCLinuxOS or MEPIS. See other posts on the subject!
