If your hardware is supported under debian as of now, installation will be
as easy as boot live cd, double click install icon .... click "next" button
a couple times, enter name and password, edit paritions (or accept auto
partitioner scheme), click "install" button .... get coffee (or other
preferred beverage) and reboot

only thing i watch out for is sometimes the video card isn't detected
flawlessly, but i have noticed this to be true in debian also, so i don't
think any surprises should come up.
