Linux on Notebook

We all know that Linux is coming on the desktop, but when it will be ready for the notebooks? Say, I've got this Dell Inspiron 8600 with optional TrueMobile 802.11b/g wireless card... The resource I found which covers installation of Linux on the notebook of this model:

Linux on Dell Inspiron 8600

Goes to great detail about what and how should be patched in kernel... And wha steps to take when something is not detected or not compiling... And that's what makes me feel uneasy... I'd just love to see Linux distro which would install on notebook as easily as Linux currently installs on main stream desktop hardware.

YellowDog Linux on a PowerBook was the easiest Linux installation I ever made including some desktop installation I made. A friend of mine had also bought a Dell laptop, and is very pleased with Suse Linux.
