Kevin: I suggest you try the CentOS 5.2 Live CD on it, after you
receive the laptop. Then, you will know if CentOS is the distro for
that Laptop. CentOS is an Enterprise Distro and not well suited to the
latest HW, especially on a Laptop. If CentOS doesn't work on it, the
way you want it to, consider running Fedora or Ubuntu or something
else on it. The Live CD's make it very easy to check out how a Distro
will work on the HW you have.

If you upgrade to something that is not supported by the distro, you
broke it and  you fix it.
GL with the new Dell Laptop! Lanny
