And after some googling  there are others that have gentoo and Ubunto running on it. can any. Thus i conclude that it should run fedora 10 i386 .. can anyone make recommendations. I would obviously like to recompile the the kernel, to squeeze all I can out of it. Where could i find a good example config file to start with. should I be using i386 ?

My Acer Aspire One works fine with F10/i386.  I got the model that came with
Windows XP on it because that was the one with an actual hard drive in it.  I
just reformatted and installed F10 and everything just worked without any
further fiddling around.

I added this to /etc/rc.local as well.  It gets better battery life this way:
