Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

The best version of Linux is the one you stick with after trying some of them. There are several distros out there specifically developed for notebooks, Ubuntu has(d) a netbook remix, the 11.04 version install very nicely on them (installed twice on different notebooks for friends without any problems, one was an Acer, the other one Fujitsu), there's Peppermint which is very nice and fast. Those are only a couple I've tried out myself. Have a look at the search page on A bit further down the page you can select Netbook under Distribution Category and then click on the Query button further down. That will give you a list with 20+ distros suitable for netbooks.

Download some of them, install them on an USB stick if you don't have an external CD/DVD reader and try them out to see if all of your hardware gets detected out of the box and if you like the desktop environment.

In order to install them from image (ISO) to a USB drive have a look at Unetbootin.

Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

in addition to what EricTRA recommends, antiX or Crunchbang are viable choices.

I'm very happy running Fedora 15 LXDE spin on my ZG5.

My total install is just under 3GB, and that includes adding GIMP, GRAMPS, and some developer files. Things like photos go onto a separate partition and/or an SD card
