My Machine has the following configuration

Processor : Intel Pentium 4 (3.0 GHz) HT
RAM         : 1.5 GB DDR1
Video       : ATI Radeon Express 200 Series Onboard integrated graphics (128 MB)
HDD         : 80 GB

I really want to switch to Ubuntu but i m new to it. I tried installing 9.04 and 9.10
but both these distributions suddenly hangs in between.
I'll appreciate if anybody can suggest the best suited distribution for above configuration.

Hi
You could use  Linux Mint which build on ubuntu , the  standed Edition with GNOME is most likely the best .see :http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php

- or you  could choose one  of the light  Community Edition like XFCE or LXDE ,Fluxbox see http://www.linuxmint.com/download_ce.php hope it helps .

- make sure you install the Driver for your ATI Radeon Express and install update's !

hope helps
