Ubuntu on an LG E200 laptop?

As my aging ThinkPad is starting to show signs of an impeding retirement, I recently began looking for a newer laptop to replace it. My current choice would be for an LG Electronics model E200-A.CPPPV laptop. However, when trying an Ubuntu Feisty live CD on it, X failed to find any usable screen resolution and aborted. Thus I was wondering if anybody had better results using a Gutsy CD? In principle, the hardware should be supported, since it's all Intel and ATI components but, these days, you never know, especially with graphic and wireless chipsets. Comments?

Well, could you post a lspci?
If it has ati graphics, you have the choice between vesa, radeon, radeonhd and fglrx, the later two not in gutsy I think...

I have gutsy(32Bit) installed in an LG-E500 SP23P. I works pretty much well, and the only problems that I have are in the sound and with integrated webcam that I can't get i to work
