All of the drivers should work out of the box (included in ubuntu). Go ahead and install it first, then if something doesn't work you can chase down the drivers for it.

hello there!

 

did you try using the live cd of ubuntu surely it would have cleared your apprehensions perhaps

 

i think n200 series has nvidia/intel 965g for graphics both of them must work out of the box?can you specify which country you are from?may be i can provide much more info regarding support for linux then because not all n200's have same specs!they configurations are country specific some times

Hi,

 

Just boot an Ubuntu CD; it should work fine, mostly.

 

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 on my N200 and most things work okay. The only thing I can't get to work is the modem. Webcam works fine, just install the cheese package. Fingerprint reader works minimally; you can install the aes2501-wy package to at least be able to get a picture of your fingerprint.
