nix on HP ZE2000 - worth trying?
My main concern is that, with limited linux experience (been running Debian for about 6 months, can follow directions well and have a basic understanding of the filesystem and editing config files), I can get a distro up and running without taking a week to do it, and that my wife can use the wireless easily on open networks at school, coffee shops, etc. I can't wipe Windows and then leave her without a machine.
I realize the info is vague. Any opinions if it's reasonable to try, or if by some crazy chance someone else with the same laptop had success, or lack thereof? I was thinking about using a Partition Magic type utility and dual booting as a safety net, but I've heard that can cause more headaches than it's worth (my desktop is dual boot, but from separate physical disks).
