I have a similar laptop, and had problems.  I run the live cd under VMWare.  Even if you do get the live cd booting, there will still be issues due to the lack of support for the widescreen viewing mode.

Hi Pascal,

Thanks for the tips. I got the laptop, and downloaded Ubuntu 7.1 for 64 bit processors. My laptop is a Copmaq Presario 3611AU, here are the specs:

AMD Athlon 64 1.8Ghz
14.1" Widescreen 1280*800
120GB HDD, 1.5GB RAM
nVidia GeForce 7150m graphics card with shared memory

When I boot from the Ubuntu 7.1 LiveCD/Installer, everything works fine ( I select install, the 1st option on the menu ), and then it says that the graphics card and monitor were not detected, and that it's running in low res mode. If I select ignore problem and continue, the laptop freezes, and sometimes it just keeps giving the bcm43xx error again and again. Nothing happens when I select the graphics driver for nVidia 7 series card too. Anyone experienced these problems? I googled, and get a lots of hits, but nothing conclusive yet...

Thanks in advance,
