I have been using an S2110 for several years now, and it works just fine with basically all of the latest Linux distributions. I currently have it set to multi-boot the following:

- Ubuntu 8.10
- Mandriva 2009.0
- PCLinuxOS 2009.1
- openSuSE 11.1
- Fedora 10
- MEPIS 8.0

All of these installed essentially out-of-the-box, no special manipulations necessary. I did not have to use the madwifi drivers on any of them, they all recognized and enabled the Atheros wifi adapter without problem. The ATI display controller works with either the Xorg “ati” driver, or the proprietary “fglrx” driver.

I'm very pleased with this laptop.
