One comment on this:  I've bought many machines from Dell, destined to
run linux, and each time I've been able to get sufficient information *before*
the order to know with high confidence linux would support all parts (or,
I knew what the current problems were).  Not sure if such information is
available with a Wal-Mart purchase.  Nor is this an endorsement for Dell.

My general impression of your plan is that you'd probably learn a bit more
about the hardware than you know now, and learning is always good, but is the
cost of the time spent doing so worth it to you?  Only you can know.
