For the audio to work, you need to use at least ALSA v1.0.11. This comes with kernel version 2.6.16 or greater.
The graphics chip will work with either the open source nv module or with the proprietary nvidia module. For 3D support, you will need the proprietary module. For the open source module, you will need a recent version of Xorg for the module to support this graphics chip, such as the one included with Fedora Core 5.
A pretty good laptop to use with Linux. For best results a Linux distribution with kernel version 2.6.16 or greater is recommended.
