The HP 2510P has fairly standard components and so work well with a up to date Linux distribution. You should use a distribution with at least kernel 2.6.22 for best support.
As long as a distribution with kernel 2.6.22 or greater is used, such as Ubuntu 7.10, the HP 2510P works just fine with Linux. Everything was automatically detected and configured properly.
