This box is perfect! But it needs a kernel 2.6.34 to have ethernet card working. It doesn't want to boot without acpi=off or better (For multi-processors) acpi=ht.
With that you think: what a shit!
Moment guys, I'll give you a solution.
Install Fedora 13 with only free software and acpi=ht. Update it! Then install a kernel linux-libre 2.6.35 from freed-ora 14 there: http://www.fsfla.org/download/linux-libre/freed-ora/F-14/
Add to the kernel boot:
Code:
acpi=copy_dsdt
There'll be a patch in next kernel version, I think.
Reboot and you'll see all working out-of-the-box: ethernet, wifi (ath9k), webcam and Fn keys.
I call it my blag 129K beta. Ok! It needs icecat for f13 x86_64 version.
With some help it'll be fine to make a live cd installing it. I'm on holidays for three weeks so will try. Some help on IRC is welcomed.
But people seem to disappear dangerously these times.

Will install 119K on it with a kernel 2.6.35 later. I think it'll work. For using a linux-libre 2.6.35 on 119k read cyrille howto on blagpedia here: http://blag.wiki.aktivix.org/Upgrade-kernel-blag119K
