As of kernel-2.27 in Fedora 10 , the Asus 1000 Sd version all the drivers are available .

Thanks to all for the info. It looks very promising and I'll be trying
F10 in the next or two. I have a sneaking desire to go straight to F11b
(mainly for the ext4 fs) but that may be a bridge too far at the moment.

ext4 has been available since FC9... FC11 makes it the default, but you don't need (or IMHO *want*) to go FC11 if you are interested in using the machine as opposed to having a learning experience. FC11 is "good for beta" but definitely in a testing stage. And during install there's a prompt something like "Are you out of your mind?" or similar, to remind you this may not be suitable for production. And in my experience it isn't, although it's a fun ride if you have multiple machines and use one for playing.
