I got myself an Eeepc to play around with and I'd love to get Fedora running on it. Issues that I'm aware of:

- Ethernet driver. Controller is an Attansic Tech L2 100Mbit Ethernet Adapter (rev a0) (0200: 1969:2048). This uses the atl2 driver. Anyone have any ideas on the chances of this going upstream? Interestingly I see this in some of the 2.0.3 files:

Chris posted patches upstream on netdev a few weeks ago.  It's
happening, though I forget if the driver had to go through another
revision or what.  Hopefully will hit 2.6.25, though it's not in
garzik's netdev-2.6.25 yet so it might not.

We (Jay Cliburn, the other atl1 maintainer, and I) just got a huge code dump from Atheros. We're currently working to integrate it into a unified atlx codebase to support atl1, atl2, and future chips from Atheros that are based on the same hardware. We're hoping to get this in 2.6.25. Anyone with an atl2 chip who wants to help test should contact me off-list.
