I install Ubuntu on my Compaq V3000, wireless not work. I
ubuntu wiki help.
On Fedora 7 and Fedora 8, the wireless work with few steps.
Ubuntu remove my previous grub (never ask me). Fedora ask if you need a
Ubuntu's installer dont let choose (like Window$)
If you need things "Just to work" and aren't bothered by firmware and
other blobs in your kernel why don't you just use LinuxMint?
It is an enhanced version of Ubuntu and it "Just Works".
Your friends will thank you many times...
