It look like everthing was working on ubuntu 10.04 64 bit only Fn+F3 (enable wifi) doesnt work, but still you can enable it by right clicking on the conection icon in panel.

I'm still learning ubuntu so I didnt notice it at the first time :)

By the way in my opinion Ubuntu as operating system suits better for this computer than windows 7.

Fedora 14, 64bit
all (but wifi) works out of the box

I'm only running into issues on the linux distro it self to compile the madwifi kernel modules,

and it seems to be a kernel version issue, looking for that patch then I will add the solution here and on my blog

found this useful for enabling WiFi.

Was able to enable and connect after following this thread.

The only problem i discovered running ubuntu 10 is concerning the wi-fi that doesn't work.
If someone knows a way to activate it, please post here.

I have same problem on ubuntu 10.04 64 bit.
I also noticed black screen with computer freezing when you click restart after ubuntu instalation.

Now I'm looking for solution for wifi…
