Re: installing linux in G430

SuSE 11.1 will be a very good fit for your laptop provided that you test the functionality using live cd versions of open SuSE 11.1

 

you can get them here .

 

Install linux from the same cd after you feel satisfied about using the live cd version

Re: installing linux in G430

It should detect them.Try the live cd first.
