    Try Linux Mint:

    Main Page - Linux Mint

    It is Ubuntu based. When I installed it on my old Dell laptop, it recognized and installed my Broadcom drivers. It took only three clicks of the mousepad!

    It starts up as a Live CD, and then you can install it if you want. The trick is to have a wired LAN connection hooked up before you boot the Live CD. It will configure and use that connection to download any needed wireless drivers.
