Someone told me ubuntu has the drivers built in. I just need wifi and sound. So far i have tried xp. If someone could show me a list of the necessary drivers to install for xp i will revert to that. (i saw one list but it was long and i wasnt sure which ones were necessary). I tried linux mint and that didnt have drivers built in. I was hoping for a light port of ubuntu that still had the drivers built in or to get xp working. ANy help is apprecieated. THanks.

If you look at Dell's site, the mini 9 came with either XP or Ubuntu. What did you do with the OS on the system? It should work fine with either OS.
When i got it the hdd was full and was having a bsod due to this. So i just did a clean install.
If you did a clean install without using the restore partition or disk, just download the drivers from Dell's site.
