GeForce Go 7800 GTX - Linux

I am awaiting a new Dell XPS with GeForce Go 7800 GTX, I was hoping to install a Linux distribution but have not seen a driver available. Can any kind person suggest a Linux distribution that will support the card?:D

You should be fine with the default driver from what ive heard, i havnt owned a laptop for a while, and the newbie distros seem to haave beter hardware support, id try ubuntu (what i use its great), suse, or debain...
