Not really the answer you were after, but I've got a D420 and as long
as you go for 7.10* the installation should go off without a hitch and
all the hardware should work without any specialist poking required**.

* I had some problems with 7.04 really not liking the wireless card to
the extent it wouldn't boot without the wireless being switched off.

** I did make a change to xorg.conf to speed up the touchpad a bit, the
default was different from my last laptop so annoyed me. I've seen
mentioned in a few of the sites talking about putting linux on this
machine, so it might be something you'd want to do. I don't know how
the default behaviour under linux compares to that on windows as I
never had windows installed.
