I have a ground up build of Arch running on mine with a dual boot of Win7. Everything works great, but took a little bit since it was an Arch build. The drivers and everything are out there.

Any other guys out there that has tried Linux on K40in? I was planning to do the same, I'm just affraid I wont be able to have necessary drivers. What distro would work on this machine? I tried ubuntu but I wan not to have Nvidia working…

I was able to install RHEL5 without a hitch, but am still working on the drivers. Right now, I don't have any drivers for the display and the sound. No problems with processor, screen, HDD, optical drive, ethernet and USB. I haven't tried using the Camera or the card reader. Also, no problems when shutting down Linux. Although sometimes when I do a restart, it hangs. Then I have to press the Power button to turn off the laptop and turn it on again.

I have similar problem. My Asus K40IN processor is Pentium Dual Core T4200. I'm using Fedora 11. Its sound card hasn't produce any sound yet. Also it newer able to restart.
