"latest version on this latop,"    -->   Yes it's possible. Debian can "ride" on such machine ;-)))  read --> " Linux Laptop pages ". Tip for you ;-) Next time read manual " http://www.us.debian.org/releases/etch/installmanual " ;-))) there are all info about this system. there you can find info about System Requirements , Supported Hardware.

yes... Compaq Armada 7800 laptop. isnt on the list (you can have problems with sound <-- corr me if im wrong ;-)) but you can read similar faq http://www.smallvue.com/Armada7400.html.

if you have problems with installing some hardware... search google and if isnt there then write it here ;-)
