Below is what I wrote about the 320.  I don't see any linux support for this right now.  I am going to try out an Optiplex 740 this week and will see what all can be installed on that.

I have a Dell 320 that I'm trying to install linux on because the 210L was phased out.  So far the only thing I've heard of people actually getting to work on this is the Knoppix Live CD and Mandriva Free 2007.

A lot of problems come in with the ATI sb600 chipset.  I haven't heard from anyone yet if the Optiplex 740 is able to work w/ any major distros.
