What problem(s) are you having, when trying to install Linux? Which distribution are you trying to use? And do you have any experience with installing Linux?

We'll need this and possibly more information before we can help you. But there's certainly evidence on the web, that installing Linux on a Dell Inspiron 6000 is possible and apparently the installations can work just fine.

Dell partners with ubuntu for its linux distribution. You try to install ubuntu linux on your inspiron 6000. You can request Ubunutu installation cd (free of charge) or download ubuntu from url : https://shipit.ubuntu.com/

It would be better if can elaborate your problem in intalling linux.

Problem I faced while installing Linux in my dell inspiron is "sata driver problem". it exists with old versions of Linux distribution only. so if you try with new version it may have solved. eg debian Lenny, fedora 11, etc..

If the OPs problem were with SATA drivers, Windows XP would probably not install easily either, as those drivers have to be added before the actual installation. (It's possible to do that of course, but if that were the case, I'm sure the OP would have given such details.) Still, that information may be useful for other visitors, so thank you for giving it. :-)

Now, as long as we don't get more information about what the problem is, we can't help much. So we'll just have to wait and see if the OP returns.
