The webcam works with the linux-uvc drver. However this driver is still beta and may not work properly with every configuration. You will need to install this driver manually as I don't believe any distribution includes this.
For some of the hardware in the Asus F3E you will need kernel version 2.6.22 or higher. Ubuntu 7.10 and Fedora 8 are good candidates for this laptop.
As long as you use a Linux distribution with at least kernel 2.6.22 you shouldn't have many problems with the F3E.
