The Geforce 8600M included with the Asus V2S is not supported by the open source Xorg driver so you will need to use the proprietary NVIDIA driver for proper support. Some distributions, such as Ubuntu 7.10, include this driver which makes installation easier.
For sound to work you will need to add the following line to your /etc/modprobe.conf (or your distributions equivalent) file:
options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo
A little bit of configuration work is require for the Asus A2S to function properly with Linux but after this is done the A2S works just fine.
