I've tried with Linux Mint 7 And everything works except for the Fingerprint Reader

In June 2009 I installed Ubuntu 9.04 as a hybrid setup with Windows XP. I can confirm the following to be functional out of the box with 9.04:

Keyboard
Trackpad
Graphics
Optical drive (CD+-RW/DVDreader)
Hard drive (60gb)
Ethernet
Wifi (b/g)
USB

I originally upgraded from 8.10 to 9.04 and had graphics problems that I never managed to resolve, but reformatting the linux partition and installing 9.04 from scratch more than did the trick. I already had the machine set up as a hybrid when I was running 8.10.

Audio did not work at first. Using http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1043568 as a guide, I edited /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base to add the line:
options snd-hda-intel model=laptop
I then reboot the system, ran alsamixer, and on all output channels in alsamixer I made sure they were unmuted and did not have the volume turned low.

I have never used any other hardware on the laptop, like modem, fingerprint reader, etc, so I can't speak for their functionality.
