Dell releases custom Ubuntu 7.04 ISOs with drivers and fixes

Dell has released a custom "remastered" Ubuntu 7.04 installation CD ISO that can be used to install Ubuntu on an Inspiron 1420 or 530. The ISO automatically installs all of the drivers and fixes that are required to make Ubuntu fully functional on those systems.

Dell laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled currently ship with a regular Ubuntu 7.04 installation CD that can be used to reinstall the operating system from scratch after reformatting. Unfortunately, the default Ubuntu installation does not include the best drivers so dell has a new remastered custom ubuntu cd just for you.

The "remastered" installation ISO could also be used by Inspiron 1420 and 530 owners who didn't buy their laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled, but wish to install it themselves...
