It would be nice to see how the new netbook version of Ubuntu 9.04
stacks up on this platform.

So I did an NFS install of openSuSE 11.1 and it works great.  I havent tested out the special "function" keys just yet but so far all is well.

Pretty much out of the box everything worked except wifi.  There's a page on the web showing what tar.gz file to download/decompress/compile to get it working.
