Will this chipset work 'out of the box' and which version of Ubuntu should I install (ie which version has a kernel that has the drivers installed)?

Google is failing me (can't find any recent info) and I want to convert my bro to Ubuntu :)

BTW this is the cheapy PC he is getting clicky (http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?BB-AM366M)

Cheers

I am using a Nvidia Geforce 6150se Nforce430 and it works flawlessly with restricted drivers, and compiz works even with "best" filtering.

So far all Ubuntu-based distros work perfectly, including live cds.

Great! The last thing I want is a huge mess with the graphics drivers not working as they should.

Hopefully I have an old Dapper CD laying around as I don't want him to use the wonderful Hardy until its released.

how much ram do you have? Feisty would be a better choice if you have 512ram

Actually this is true. My total ram is 1024. Yes I am short on funds anyone willing to donate another gig of ram? :)

My ram consumed by the card is 146mb. So I have only 878 usable. Note I am joking above 878 is all I need.

The PC has 1gb ram which is enough for what he needs

Another GB of RAM for the PC in my 1st post is only 16.22 from Novatech, so memory costs peanuts these days ;)
