    Dell Mini 1018 with Ubuntu netbook Edition installation help ?


    I need your help to install Ubuntu on Dell Mini for my borther who knows nothing about ubuntu. He is used to windows but he is fed-up. Does it possible, then how please ? I couldn't find downloadable version for Atom processor computers.
    I used ubuntu since 1 year on Dell Latitude,
    After installation, should I need to do something special, or UNE could do everything automatically when we install it. e.g. sound card, vga card, wireles card etc.

    Thank in advance for your help!

    The notebook specification are described below.

    There is no longer a "Netbook Edition" of Ubuntu - the standard 32-bit version will work fine. No need for an Atom version any more.
    The only issue may be the graphics card (Intel GMA3150) - but I believe the driver issue was resolved in the latest version (11.10).
    I think all the drivers should be installed as default, although the webcam and wifi may require some work - you have not given any detail on manufacturer.
    The simplest solution is to try a Live USB of Ubuntu 11.10 - if it works, then you should have no problem with installation.
