Video projector for Linux

I have a Dell Laptop Inspiron8600 and it has 15 pin vga connector
and s-video connector and I want to buy a Video Projector to use
on it during group meetings and I'm using Fedora5 and Suse10.1.
Could someone give some feed back on type, Manufacture, Model, projector to buy.

It shouldnt make a difference what kind of projector you buy. As long as your vga connector works it'll just show up as a monitor.
