Thus far I've had Debian Sarge and Mandriva 2006 on it, both via network
install. You do need a USB floppy drive though. With Mandriva I had
everything working except screen rotation. this helped lots with the Mandriva install.
With a USB CD/DVD drive I was able to get Ubuntu installed. Though, SuSE
9.3, Fedora 4 and Mandriva 2005 couldn't see the harddrive when I tried

Well worth putting Linux on IMO.
