I installed Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) using [http://lubi.sourceforge.net/unetbootin.html UNetbootin], since I did not have an optical drive. This worked fine for me, but note that this is an unsupported method. At least back up your data. See ["Installation"].
I then upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron).

[[Anchor(screen)]]
==== Screen ====
As of 2008-01-16 guidance-power-manager-kde crashes on startup, apparently because it doesn't get brightness control information. Previously it worked, as did automatic brightness control through it.

[[Anchor(bluetooth)]]
==== Bluetooth ====
According to Dell's driver downloads page D430 has a Dell 360 bluetooth module. I got it to work by installing the newest driver from Dell's support page. (workaround discovered thanks to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=572335 )

[[Anchor(hardwarevolume)]]
==== Volume controls ====
 * Fn + End, which toggles mute, works
 * Fn + Page Up, which should be volume up, sets the volume at 12 %
 * Fn + Page Dn, which should be volume down, sets the volume at 0 %
