    I would recommend Fedora, 'cause it's really easy to install with its graphical installer. In fact, most things in Fedora can be controlled via GUI (no command line exp. needed). Good for a beginning step into the world of Linux.

    I don't have a notebook of my own, but I've heard lots of success stories with notebooks running SUSE.

    fedora's ok, but some cpufreq modules arent enabled by default in the kernel. if you have a lappy with an intel proc., you maybe in luck. but i own a lappy with a amd proc.

    thats why i changed to gentoo. lightning fast with only 56mb of ram used using fluxbox.

    I would recommend....SUSE 10. Get it ..coz it has some real good utils like battery monitor....which I think is not available in Fedora Core..!

    Fedora has a battery monitor.

    My recomendation would be Fedora or Ubuntu.
