Best way to find out is to download a live CD. If you're planning on running Debian, using the Ubuntu Live CD should demonstrate whether current Debian works on your system.

It may not auto-configure all devices in Live CD - don't be surprised if you find that USB headset or WIFI card doesn't work on boot - but at least it will give you a clear idea of whether the system works or not on your machine.

Ubuntu's 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is reported to boot on the e200 in Live CD mode; you need to use "safe" graphics mode to do the install (after which you can install the correct video drivers).

Enjoy your new OS!

    If Ubuntu works, then you can always grab a Debian install CD and install that as well.

    I've used Debian since about 98 or 99, but happily use Ubuntu as well now. Enjoy!

I have just installed the LG portable super multi drive and it wont recognise any audio cd that is in there???

Make sure the data cable and power cables are properly installed. Do any other discs work in the drive?
If you are using this on linux, you should be able to check /dev/ and make sure that the drive is mounting properly.
If it is mounting, then make sure you have all restricted packages installed so you can play audio. DId audio CDs work before?
Try using a different disc, like a movie or a program disc.
If no discs work, the drive may be defective.

I just bought and installed an LG portable super multi drive. It plays DVD video content but doesn't play the sound. How do I fix this?

I had the same problem. I contacted LG through their chat support and spoke with two workers who gave me two solutions, but did not work.One of the solutions was to upgrade the software that cam ewith the player--for $60. I;m taking mine back to Best Buy and getting something else from another store. Best Buy were the bozos that assured me it would work properly. As for LG, I don't think it is too much to ask of them that when I purchase a product from them that it work properly.

No sound with my LG Portable Super Multi Drive

It will not work properly. If you contact their support they will just try to get you to pay for an upgrade of the software. Take it back to the store and get something else.
