That's often the problem with first having the hardware and then deciding
to install linux on it.

Heck, hardware's not a problem as long as 1) you write all your own drivers, or 2) you don't buy anything manufactured in the last 2 years. Of course, even this doesn't hold for video cards. Unless you have free year to tweak the X config, you're going to have black bars all around the screen (although truthfully, I've never seen an installation that didn't -- on Linux).
