ALErs -

Wwhich Linux dietributions drop smoothly onto Dell D610 Inspiron laptops?
I have noticed that my live-CD Knoppix fails to start up XFree (but
RedHat-7.3 handles it just fine -- Go figure.). Also, it seems to have the
AC'97 based audio - possibly modem also - that some setups seem to handle
much better than others.

I had excellent results with SuSE-9.3 on my Fry's laptop, including its 
AC'97 modem, so my inclination would be to go with SuSE again.

Suggestions welcome. Thanks.
