I don't know which Linux system for my Dell Inspiron 1200?


Can anyone tell me if there is one? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

To give you a good advice about that we need to know more details, like:
- CPU-speed
- Amount of RAM
- graphics card
- your knowledge level
- what do you want to achieve with that system.

Also the wireless card.

Most of the Dell laptops I've seen (I have two right now and have had two others) seem to use Broadcom. Some distros have better support (read, easier to get working) of Broadcom than others.
