Hello, a friend of mine has just bought Dell XPS M1530, he wanted to try linux, i suggested him pclinux 2007 (as he was a noob)but but he was having problem with touchpad (way toooo fast) and dsl via ethernet working.So does anyone know of any good noob distro that works out of the box with dell XPS M1530? [He is in another city so i cant help him physically]
by noob distro i mean very GUI oriented ,easy and if possible LIVE CD +installer
