Hello.

I just bought a Dell Inspiron 1526 with a processor AMD Turin X 64
TL-60 and I want to install linux in this laptop. It comes with VISTA
and I was told it would be difficult to find the drivers for LINUX
for all the stuff my laptop has, so I would like to know if someone
could help me. I have never used LINUX before, but I know it is much
better and can be found in 64 bits version.


Actually I want to make several partitions in my laptop and leave one
of them with vista so I can install windows-based programs and use
them there.

Well, I will appreciate if someone could give me some orientation.

Best regards

Alberto Jaume

Dances with crows,

Thank you for your help! I will try to find someone in my hometown who
knows about linux. I will check more about Ubuntu and will see if I am
able to install it recognizing the hardware.

I will post later if I succeed or not in recognizing all the hardware
of my laptop.

Cheers!

Alberto
