    Yes. You can go for Ubuntu. But be careful when doing the partitioning.

    Try a livecd and once all your hardware works install it..
    Also i would suggest PCLInuxOS as it has all the apps preinstalled .IT would save time installing all the plugins and other software u need..

    I suggest OpenSuSE 10.1 remastered; most of it is GUI configuration.

    You have to boot from it! Not mount it in Daemon tools! When your PC starts, enter the BIOS by pressing <del> or <f2> and change the boot device priority to boot from CD ROM.
