i try to install ubuntu 9.04. it had xp inside and while i was finishing the partitioning manage it getting in ubuntu like a live cd. when i reboot it was like i didn't had do anything. when i select to install using all the hard disk, it done well. But the ubuntu 9.04 was to heavy for this computer. All the parts works successful! and the compiz effects was running well.

I've been running Ubuntu on this laptop, and was unsuccessful til i pu t the Hardy release upgrade on. I power up with the external display disconnected. When i choose the ubuntu linux kernel in grub, i immediately plug in the LCD display, and ubuntu finds it and uses it with no fuss (and no xorg.conf editing whatsoever on my part)
