i'm not very positive about ubuntu ..
i'd recoment you slackware - the latest release (12) now has
HAL and 2.6.12 kernel ..it didn't have either before for a reason ..
well .. it's up to you which distro to run .. but some of them aren't
designed to run on older hardware (such as suse and probably ubuntu)..
.. also may be it's a good idea to minimize the kernel (just too be sure
i'd say - i can set up a dedicated box which would have only necessary
apps on it and would take the full advantage of the hw .. but it is very
hard to explain all i would do setting it up.
try studing more about linux, i think if you feel up for it - you'll get
to the point when you can sort it out.
