Laptop + Linux, Aspire 3022


After downloading knoppix I discovered the touch pad wouldn't work, this was a bit of a shame cause i have no ps2 connector on the back of this laptop (only usb)

I'd like to find a linux distro that would work best with my laptop, I've searched the usualy places, but I havent been able to find any useful infomation, so I thought I'd post on here.

I'm a linux newbie, I've only used it once before. so I'm hoping to gain experiance by running it on my current laptop.

Here's a list of spesifications of my laptop that might come in useful.

Acer Aspire 3022
: Mobile AMD Sempron 2800+, 1.60 GHz

Video: Plug and Play Monitor on ATi ATI MOBILITY Radeon X600 (1280x800x32bpp 60Hz)

Sound: Realtek AC97 Audio

Connection Hardware:
56Kbps ITU V.92 data/fax software modem with international PTT certification; Wake-on-Ring ready
10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet; Wake-on-LAN ready
Integrated IEEE 802.11b/g wireless LAN Wi-Fi CERTIFIED´┐Ż solution

Thanks in advance, I'll post back very soon.
