I plan to install ubuntu on an old Dell Latitude C640 (mfr. 2003) and will increase RAM to 1GB. It has a Linksys Wireless N network adapter (model WPC300N V1). Two questions, what version of ubuntu should I download/install and will the Linksys wireless adapter work?

1) will the network adapater work? googling I found a solution right away where they used an ndiswrapper, so it should.
2) What version to use? The specs arn't great but in theory, you should be able to run regular Ubuntu on it. In the real world though, your ram will be just sufficient but i fear your processor will prove too limited. Therefore i would try Lubuntu.
gd luck!
