Based on community feedback, we have created remastered Ubuntu 7.04 CD media to help with installing the OS on the Inspiron 1420 and 530. This media includes the drivers and fixes necessary to get the OS up and running with supported hardware on those systems. For example, this media takes care of all of the steps identified here to get the OS installed on the Inspiron 1420. Please try this out, and let us know how it works.
