I've never personally managed to get it working seamlessly, but the best I got was Ubuntu 8.04 with the acpi turned off. Like this, my wireless and graphics cards work fine, as does the sound card, but the fan is always on and the laptop has to be turned off manually (like the old Windows, with the "It is now safe to turn off your computer" message). On top of that, it won't tell me how much battery is left. If I were you I wouldn't bother until you get a new laptop, one that isn't a HP.
