    Mac Linux advice needed
    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to try linux, but I need some advice. What distros have limited hardware issues with macs? Specifically, I'd like to try a distro that will let me run it off a CD or USB flash drive and mount my filesystem so I can save files and play around with it for awhile to see if I like it.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

    X,
    asilo

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    Ubuntu is my favorite and it works fine with new Intel Macs.

    Quite a few now offer Live CD: you might try Linspire or Freespire.

    Can any of these read/write to the hard drive from the live cd? I'd like to give it a true shot.
