If this helps, I am using the following:

Asus P5LD2
AI Lifestyle Series

- Intel 945P chipset
- Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU
- Intel® Core™2 Extreme / Core™2 Duo Ready
- Dual-Core CPU Ready
- FSB 1066/800/533
- DDR2 667/533/400
- Marvell PCIe Gbit LAN

I have had a lousy experience with Ubuntu, I even have a Acer 4200 
laptop and I had the same problem before.
